There is a need for consistent definition of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated cases of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), especially following the profound disease changes that have resulted from the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). According to the criteria used for diagnosis, PML cases should be either referred to as “histology-confirmed,” with evidence of JC virus (JCV) infection in brain, “laboratory-confirmed,” with detection of JCV DNA in… CONTINUE READING
