Objective: BK virus (BKV) infection has been shown to be related to hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). There are conflicting data regarding the association between BKV titers in plasma and clinical disease as well as the risk factors for BKV-related HC. Our aim is to study the risk factors and relationship with plasma BK viral load for development of HC in a prospective analysis.
