In allogeneic bone marrow transplanted (BMT) patients BK virus (BKV) reactivation has been associated with haemorrhagic cystitis (HC). However, it is far from obvious which patients will develop HC, since BKV, a human polyomavirus, is ubiquitious and infects children at an early age. To investigate if a primary BKV infection, as such or possibly due to transmission of BKV by the marrow graft during BMT, was correlated to the development of HC, 45 children were followed for possible BKV… CONTINUE READING
