West Nile virus (WNV) is an arthropod-borne virus commonly transmitted to humans mainly by Culex mosquitoes, although transmission through blood transfusion or organ transplantation has been reported.7 WNV is maintained in a continuous cycle within mosquitos and birds, wherein mosquitos are the vectors and the birds are the reservoir. Humans, just like horses and other mammalians, act as dead-end hosts and do not contribute to the spreading of the infection. The aim of this multicentre study was to analyse the clinical features and the outcome of WNV infection in patients with malignancies of B-cell lineage.

Abstract

West Nile virus (WNV) is an arthropod-borne virus commonly transmitted to humans mainly by Culex mosquitoes, although transmission through blood transfusion or organ transplantation has been reported.7 WNV is maintained in a continuous cycle within mosquitos and birds, wherein mosquitos are the vectors and the birds are the reservoir. Humans, just like horses and other mammalians, act as dead-end hosts and do not contribute to the spreading of the infection. The aim of this multicentre study was to analyse the clinical features and the outcome of WNV infection in patients with malignancies of B-cell lineage.
