Thogotovirus is a genus in the virus family Orthomyxoviridae. It can replicate in both tick cells and vertebrate cells and is usually transmitted by ticks.

Thogoto virus can be transmitted from infected to uninfected ticks when co-feeding on uninfected guinea-pigs, even though the guinea-pigs do not develop detectable viraemia.

THOV has been isolated from ticks in Africa and southern Europe. THOV is known to infect humans in natural settings. DHOV has been isolated from ticks in India, eastern Russia, Egypt, and southern Portugal. DHOV is able to infect humans, causing a febrile illness and encephalitis. THOV has 6 RNA segments and DHOV has 7. [ [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ICTVdb/Ictv/fs_ortho.htm Index of Viruses - Orthomyxoviridae (2006). In: ICTVdB - The Universal Virus Database, version 4.
