    The human neurotropic JC virus (JCV) is most commonly acquired during childhood, and, because no clinical illness has been associated with primary infection, is presumed to be asymptomatic. In the immunocompromised host, JCV is responsible for progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). We...
