Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a rare but severe demyelinating disease caused by the polyomavirus JC (JCV) in immunocompromised patients. We report a series of patients with primary immune deficiencies (PIDs) who developed PML.
To investigate if progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy (PML) incidence has increased in Finland like in the neighbouring Sweden.
JC-virus (JCV) infection of the central nervous system (CNS) causes progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) in patients with systemic immunosuppression. With the increased application of modern immunotherapy and biologics in various immune-mediated disorders, the PML risk spectrum has changed. Thus, new tools and strategies for risk assessment and stratification in drug-associated PML such as the JCV antibody indices have been introduced. Imaging studies have highlighted atypical presentations of c...
Long-term treatment of multiple sclerosis with natalizumab (NTZ) carries the risk of a devastating complication in the form of an encephalopathy caused by a reactivation of a latent John Cunningham virus infection (progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy, PML). Early diagnosis is associated with considerably better prognosis. Quantitative EEG as an objective, rater-independent technique provides high sensitivity (88%) and specificity (82%) for the diagnosis of NTZ-PML. Combination of diagnostic modalitie...
Lymphopenia is a major concern in MS patients treated with dimethyl-fumarate (DMF) as it increases the risk of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy.
Adult-onset leukoencephalopathy with axonal spheroids and pigmented glia, and Nasu Hakola disease or polycystic lipomembranous osteodysplasia with sclerosing leukoencephalopathy are both underrecognized progressive degenerative white matter diseases that can present with young dementia, leukoencephalopathy and brain calcifications. We report and compare three cases in terms of clinical phenotype, imaging and neuropathological findings. Both cases have led to the identification of two novel causal mutations.
Treatment options for multiple sclerosis (MS) have changed over the last few years, bringing about a new category of drugs with more efficient profiles. However, these drugs have come with a whole new profile of potential adverse events that neurologists have to learn well and quickly. One of the most feared complications of these MS treatments is progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy caused by the reactivation of the John Cunningham virus (JCV).
Natalizumab (NTZ) was the first approved monoclonal antibody for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Despite proven and sustained efficacy, its use is limited by the risk of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Moreover, some patients show ongoing disease activity under NTZ, requiring a switch to another disease-modifying treatment (DMT). However, evidence regarding the optimal DMT for treatment of active RRMS after NTZ-cessation is still scarce.
Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a rare but serious disease. Caused by the JC virus (JCV), it occurs in individuals with weakened immune systems and is a potential adverse reaction for certain immunomodulatory drugs. The PML Consortium was created to find better methods to predict, prevent, and treat PML. The Consortium brought together the pharmaceutical industry with academic, regulatory, and patient communities to advance research and dialogue on PML through a not-for-profit, collabora...
Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is a rare, chronic disorder with potentially severe and progressive disability, which may affect patients' quality of life (QoL). Since there is still small number of studies that predominantly investigated QoL in patients with MMN, we sought to analyze QoL in these patients.
The characteristics of multifocal PTC remain controversial. Surgical approach to multifocal tumor changes between centers. This study aimed to evaluate the incidence of bilateral involvement, predictive factors for bilaterality and whether bilaterality was related with more aggressive histopathologic features or prognosis in patients with multifocal PTC.
Multifocal intraosseous hemangioma, which affects multiple body parts, is rare. The selection of appropriate lesion sites for biopsy and effective treatment in multifocal intraosseous hemangioma is challenging. Here, we report a case of multifocal intraosseous hemangioma.
Discriminative clinical and neuroimaging features of motor-predominant hereditary diffuse leukoencephalopathy with axonal spheroids and primary progressive multiple sclerosis: A preliminary cross-sectional study.
Hereditary diffuse leukoencephalopathy with axonal spheroids (HDLS) is a rare autosomal-dominant white matter disease, typically characterized by juvenile cognitive decline and frontoparietal white matter lesions. A portion of HDLS patients exhibit preferential motor dysfunctions as their initial symptoms, mimicking multiple sclerosis (MS). However, there is no study comparing this phenotype of HDLS and primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS), which greatly resemble each other. This is the first preli...
Multifocal necrotizing leukoencephalopathy (MNL) is a rare condition typically described in patients undergoing chemotherapy or with HIV/AIDS. As a pathologic entity, it is characterized by multiple small foci of necrosis typically within white matter of the pons and occasionally in other areas. Herein we describe findings in 6 patients with MNL, 5 diagnosed at postmortem examination and 1 by surgical biopsy. Histopathologic features were characteristic, with generally small foci of necrosis, most frequentl...
JCV is a human polyomavirus (PyV) that establishes a persistent infection in its host. Current immunomodulatory therapies, such as Natalizumab for multiple sclerosis, can result in JCV reactivation, leading to the debilitating brain disease progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). JCV is among the viruses that recruit and modulate the host DNA damage response (DDR) to replicate its genome. We have identified host proteins recruited to the nuclear sites of JC viral DNA (vDNA) replication using three...
After allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, cerebrovascular complications are uncommon, occurring in approximately 2%, and typically due to coagulopathy or infection. Graft versus host disease has been rarely reported to affect the central nervous system but these cases typically describe leukoencephalopathy, encephalitis, or perivascular infiltrates or vasculitis with subcortical ischemia or hemorrhage. We report a previously undescribed noninflammatory vasculopathy causing multifocal intracra...
There is a paucity of literature regarding the outcomes of adjacent-plug osteochondral allograft transplantation (OCA) for irregular or ovoid lesions and multifocal OCA for multicompartmental, focal lesions.
Individuals with HIV infection are living longer, and are at risk of autoimmune disorders and cancers associated with aging. Many of these conditions are treated with immunobiologic agents that affect immune function and may increase risk of opportunistic infections (OIs) and other immune disorders in individuals with HIV infection. For example, tumor necrosis factor-alpha inhibitors, used to treat such disorders as Crohn's disease, are associated with risk of tuberculosis and histoplasmosis. Rituximab, use...
The polyomavirus family currently includes thirteen human polyomavirus (HPyV) species. In immunocompromised and elderly persons HPyVs are known to cause disease, such as progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (JCPyV), haemorrhagic cystitis and nephropathy (BKPyV), Merkel cell carcinoma (MCPyV), and trichodysplasia spinulosa (TSPyV). Some recently discovered polyomaviruses are of still unknown prevalence and pathogenic potential. Because HPyVs infections persist and might be transferred by blood componen...
Asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism has become the most common presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism in Europe and North America, and an increasingly common presentation in other parts of the world. As many as 25% of asymptomatic patients may develop indications for parathyroidectomy when followed long-term for up to 15 years. Patients who remain asymptomatic should be monitored for the development of complications that justify surgery. Patients who become symptomatic should be referred for surge...
Tissue-resident memory CD8 T (TRM) cells defend against microbial reinfections at mucosal barriers; determinants driving durable TRM cell responses in non-mucosal tissues, which often harbor opportunistic persistent pathogens, are unknown. JC polyomavirus (JCPyV) is a ubiquitous constituent of the human virome. With altered immunological status, JCPyV can cause the oft-fatal brain demyelinating disease progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). JCPyV is a human-only pathogen. Using the mouse polyomav...
This is the first report of multifocal inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) involving the temporal bone, orbit and paranasal sinus, and the use of rituximab as adjunctive therapy in multifocal temporal bone IPT.
