SummaryElectron microscopic observations are reported on a case of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy unassociated with any lympho-proliferative disease. The morphological evidence suggests that the condition may be caused by the replication, in the glial cell nuclei of the central nervous system, of an infective agent belonging, or related, to the papova group of viruses. The possible implications of these observations are briefly discussed.RésuméUn cas de leucoencéphalopathie… Expand
Über die progressive multifokale Leukoencephalopathie
Progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy (PML) in a patient with lymphosarcome and focal demyelination in a patient with sarcoidosis are reported and discussed. The findings in the first patientExpand
Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy during cyclosporine treatment. A case report
TLDR
A 45-year-old patient suffering from chronic renal insufficiency developed dermatopolymyositis and concomitant cyclosporine A was added, with results that confirmed the presence of intranuclear icosahedral viral bodies. Expand
Polyoma-like virions in a human demyelinating disease
TLDR
The report of an additional case is the third in which minimal manifestations of the disease were found incidentally at autopsy at autopsy, and the possible importance of all these studies for human neuro-oncology is considered. Expand
Early pathological changes in progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy: a report of two asymptomatic cases occurring prior to the AIDS epidemic
TLDR
It is suggested that PML, a disease of both oligodendrocytes and astrocycles, may actually begin in astroglial cells which, under the influence of a restricted JCV infection, become reactive, express GFAP and pass on virus to the more highly susceptible oligod endosymbiotic cells with which they are in contact. Expand
Subacute sclerosing leuco-encephalitis
TLDR
The microtubules forming the inclusions display a periodical striation suggesting a helical symmetry similar to that of some known viral nucleocapsids, providing some indications as to the type of virus to which these structures might correspond. Expand
Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy and promyelocytic leukemia nuclear bodies: a review of clinical, neuropathological, and virological aspects of JC virus-induced demyelinating disease
TLDR
PML-NBs, punctuate structures for important nuclear functions in eukaryotic cells, were identified as an intranuclear target ofJC virus infection and may provide clues to the further pathogenesis of JC virus-induced demyelinating disease. Expand

TLDR
There remain significant gaps in the understanding of JC virus biology and PML pathogenesis, but the present state of knowledge provides a framework for the generation of coherent and reasonable hypotheses. Expand

TLDR
The degree of host immunity is variable; some patients show marked anti‐viral inflammatory reactions and a good prognosis, indicating that a strong resistance against viral infection remains. Expand
Pathogenesis of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy--revisited.
TLDR
Many important aspects of PML pathogenesis remain unclear, including the molecular bases of latency and reactivation, the site(s) of latency, the relationship of archetype and prototype virus and the mode of virus transmission within the body and between individuals. Expand
Virus-cell interaction in oligodendroglia, astroglia and phagocyte in progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy
TLDR
Many virus-bearing sstroglias were noted to be in the early stage of cellular necrosis, or “edematous degeneration”, which indicates that the JC virus is capable of inducing both lytic and abortive astroglial infections. Expand
