west nile virus infection in a teenage boy with acute lymphocytic leukemia in remission.west nile virus (wnv) infection is an important cause of encephalitis. although the medical literature contains examples of wnv encephalitis in susceptible, mainly elderly, immunocompromised hosts, few case reports have described pediatric cases. the authors describe an adolescent with acute lymphocytic leukemia and wnv encephalitis. surveillance studies indicate an increase in wnv activity. physicians need to be aware of wnv activity in their community and consider wnv as a potential source of ...200516344671
west nile virus encephalitis infection in a heart transplant recipient: a case report.infection with west nile virus (wnv) ranges from causing no symptoms to causing non-specific fever, meningitis, meningo-encephalitis and death. advanced age and immunosuppression are the greatest risk factors for the development of encephalitis or other neurologic manifestations of wnv. we report the first fatal case of primary wnv infection in an orthotopic heart transplant recipient. we reviewed the literature on wnv infection in the general population and in immunocompromised hosts. as wnv be ...200515896763
