Infections due to adenovirus, polyomaviruses (BK and JC viruses), and parvovirus B19 may not be as common as infections due to other DNA viruses, such as cytomegalovirus in patients with hematological malignancies and the recipients of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. However, these infections may result in life-threatening diseases that significantly impact patients’ recovery, morbidity, and mortality. Treating physicians should be aware of the diseases associated with these viruses, the patient populations at increased risk for complications due to these infections, and the available diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
