JC virus meningitis in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus. Infectious diseases — viral systemic diseases A80—B34— A syndrome marked by progressive incoordination, dysarthria and cerebellar gait and atrophy of the cerebellum without white matter on MRI lesions occurs when a mutant virus with a 10 bp deletion in the C terminus of the VP1 capsid protein infects the granule cell neurons.

In a study with a cohort of 98 PML patients from Spain, the use of antiretroviral regimens containing protease inhibitors were associated with reduction in mortality More recently, the introduction of new immunomodulatory and immunosuppressive drugs Table 1 in the treatment of tumors and autoimmune diseases expanded the spectrum of conditions associated with PML as described below 1 10 T2-weighted image reveals asymmetrical areas of hyperintensity, more marked in the left temporal region white arrows.

There are no specific antivirals drugs against JCV. It is caused by the reactivation of the JC virus genus: Clinical presentation is marked by a transient worsening or development of new neurological symptoms and, in severe cases, signs and symptoms of intracranial hypertension.

Data from the Swiss cohort showed a decrease of the incidence from 0. However, other causes of immunosuppression such as organ transplantation, chemotherapy, immunotherapies with monoclonal antibodies, autoimmune diseases and lymphoma, may also be associated with PML.

Journal Leucoencefaloppatia Dement Neuropsychol v. The association between Rituximab, a humanized monoclonal antibody directed against the CD20 antigen on B-lymphocytes and PML was described more than ten years ago 12but it was only after the temporary withdrawn of Natalizumab, an anti- a4 integrin, from market in after three cases in Crohn’s disease and multiple sclerosis patients, that a clear relationship between some immunomodulatory agents and the development of the disease was established 13 IRIS is defined as a paradoxical worsening of preexisting infectious processes or development of new symptoms following the initiation of highly active antiretroviral therapy HAART in HIV-infected individuals.

Infusion of donor T cells specific to the related BK polyomavirus has shown possible effect in treating PML in one small study by Katy Rezvani’s group, but needs further study. It is similar to another demyelinating disease, MS, but progresses much more quickly. Open in a separate window. Focal Generalised Status epilepticus Myoclonic epilepsy. How to cite this article.

It affects the subcortical white matter, particularly that of the parietal and occipital lobes. J Neurol Neurosurg Psych ; On the other hand, immune surveillance performed by these cells against JCV and other virus may be impaired resulting in the development of PML. Survivors can be left with variable degrees of neurological disability.

Drugs such as cidofovir, cytarabine, topotecan and mefloquine were evaluated in several trials but results were disappointing and associated with serious adverse effects 1 2. HIV encephalitis lesions are commonly periventricular, diffuse, symmetric, and tend to spare subcortical U-fibers. PML is diagnosed in a patient with a progressive course of the disease, finding JC virus DNA in spinal fluid together with consistent white-matter lesions on brain magnetic resonance imaging MRI ; alternatively, a brain biopsy is diagnostic [1] when the typical leucoeencefalopatia of demyelination, bizarre leucoencefqlopatia, and enlarged oligodendroglial nuclei are present, coupled with techniques showing the presence of JC virus.

Primary infection occurs in childhood and it is asymptomatic in most patients. However, there is evidence that some antiretroviral classes may have an additional benefit over others.

Despite the support therapy, the progrfsiva evolved with clinical and radiological deterioration Figure 3. Retrieved 25 September Leucoencefalpoatia to one-half of people with PML die in the first few months following diagnosis, depending on the severity of their underlying disease. However, JCV has been also associated with other neurological diseases. This approach frequently results, three to six weeks later, in the development of an intense IRIS due to the restoration of the lymphocyte trafficking into the central nervous system that can be fatal.
