Description BK is a non-enveloped virus in the Polyomavirus family, closely related to SV40 and JC virus. Primary infection with BK generally occurs during childhood without specific symptoms, and is widespread in the population, with approximately 80% of adults infected globally. The virus remains latent in the urogenital tract, but can become transplant patients,reactivated. Asymptomatic reactivation and sporadic shedding of BK virus in urine can happen spontaneously in immunocompetant patients.
