Fatal SV40-associated pneumonia and nephropathy following renal allotransplantation in rhesus macaque.


Journal Article

Recrudescence of latent and dormant viruses may lead to overwhelming viremia in immunosuppressed hosts. In immunocompromised hosts, Simian virus 40 (SV40) reactivation is known to cause nephritis and demyelinating central nervous system disease.
