This review will encompass persistent baculovirus infections. As well, this review does not address the persistence of baculoviruses in invertebrate hosts other than insects. The intent of this review is to draw together the information on baculovirus persistence in vivo and in vitro. The authors will also attempt to relate these findings to important findings in other virus systems in an attempt to present a probable scenario on baculovirus persistence and the role of persistence in baculovirus diseases in insects. Hopefully, the present review, which deals with evolutionarily simple hosts and immune systems, will facilitate a more general understanding of the mechanisms of virus persistence.
