The name derives from three abbreviations: Pa for papillomavirus, Po for polyomavirus, and Va for "vacuolating" (simian vacuolating virus 40 or SV40, which is now known to be part of the polyomavirus genus).
They are commonly found in humans and other species, mostly mammals. The one that most often causes disease in humans is the human papillomavirus.
