* According to the {{backstory}} of ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' is that the original immortal Alexander Corvinus became one after a deadly plague that wiped out pretty much everyone else in the area mutated in his body, giving him eternal life. Later, he had three sons, two of them inherited the active form, while the third was a normal human but with a latent form of the virus. The first two sons, twins, were bitten by a wolf and a bat, further mutating the disease into [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent lycanthropy]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampirism]], respectively. Both species have superhuman strength and speed, as well as eternal life and perfect health. The only real disadvantages are weaknesses to silver (Lycans) and UV rays (vampires), although the original Lycans couldn't control themselves and went on a rampage.

* Lycanthropy in the ''AnitaBlake'' novels is depicted as a blood-borne disease that kills all other diseases and foreign substances (like toxins) in the carriers. You turn furry once a month, but can't ever get sick with anything else again. It's enough of a disease that there's even a vaccine, though a bad batch can actually turn you into a lycanthrope.
* In ''NakedLunch'', [[MadScientist Dr. Benway]] discusses curing several terminal catatonics by getting them addicted to heroin.
