Venereal infections are sexually transmitted infections that are spread through sexual activity, especially vaginal intercourse, and can result in gynecological diseases. Among these, we distinguish obstetrics-based infections, i.e., those related to pregnancy, and gyn-oncology-based infections, which affect the health of non-pregnant women; in both circumstances, viral infections play a major role. The most important viruses responsible for gynecological diseases are herpes viruses (herpes simplex, varicella zoster, and cytomegalovirus), rubella virus, hepatitis viruses, parvovirus B19, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and human papilloma virus (HPV). The latter is a well-known oncovirus that, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), causes more than 95% of cervical cancers worldwide, while HIV is the etiological agent of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which remains a global pandemic today. The aforementioned herpes viruses and rubella virus belong to the TORCH (toxoplasmosis, other agents, rubella, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex) complex, of which Zika virus is considered the most recent member. The aim of this Special Issue is to discuss all of the viral infections that result in gynecological diseases, including both those in utero that directly impact pregnancy by inducing feto-placental suffering, chorioamnionitis, stillbirth, and miscarriage, and those that trigger malignant cancer of the female reproductive tract.
