J Neurovirol ,ultifocal Suppl 2: PML can be differentiated from these diseases by its slower temporal evolution, fewer systemic manifestations, absence of fever, preservation of conscience and lack of mass effect, perilesional edema or contrast enhancement on pprogressiva tests.

It is commonly multifocal and has an asymmetric pattern of demyelination leucoencefalopatla, uni- or bilaterally, without mass effect, and invariably without contrast enhancement.

T2-weighted image reveals multifocwl areas of hyperintensity, more marked in the left temporal region white arrows. Retrieved from ” https: Originally, PML was observed in patients with advanced HIV infection, lymphoproliferative disorders and transplant recipients.

Any lobe of the brain may be affected, but there is preference for the frontal and parieto-occipital regions. It is caused lfucoencefalopatia the JC viruswhich is normally present and kept under control by the immune system. The benefit is modest at best, but it can be considered both in patients with and without HIV infection.

Pprogressiva lesions are more often multifocal and asymmetric, with greater predilection for the subcortical white matter and are associated with more pronounced signal change on T1-weighted images, while in HIV-associated demyelination, lesions are often isointense on T1, and may not be visible.

However, JCV has been also associated with other neurological diseases.

Improvement in immunosuppression seems to be beneficial and can lead to stabilization or regression of the disease in follow-up on imaging exams. On the other hand, immune surveillance performed by these cells against JCV and other virus may be impaired resulting in the development of PML.

Epidemiology From the to ‘s, PML was observed mostly in patients being treated with corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive drugs, as well as individuals with hematological malignancies. Disease course and outcome of 15 monocentrically treated natalizumab-associated progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy patients.

Gasnault et al studied 28 PML patients who miltifocal efavirenz, ritonavir-boosted lopinavir, and the fixed-dose emtricitabine- tenofovir combination for 12 months and enfuvirtide for the first six months While optic nerve or spinal cord lesion involvement is more suggestive of multiple sclerosis exacerbation and seizures were the presenting symptom of PML in several Natalizumab-treated patient, their occurrence should always raise suspicion of this condition.
