Syncytium formation induced by viral infection

Syncytia is formed by fusion of an infected cells with neighboring cells leading to the formation of multi-nucleate enlarged cells. This event is induced by surface expression of viral fusion protein that are fusogenic directly at the host cell membrane.
Syncytia canonly happen with viruses able to directly fuse at the cellular surface without the need of endocytosis.
