Figure 3. . . . Detection of A) KI polyomavirus (KIPyV) DNA in 28 hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) recipients with >2 KIPyV-positive specimens and B) WU polyomavirus (WUPyV) DNA in 6 HCT recipients with >2 WUPyV-positive specimens, with and without detection of a respiratory virus by day after transplantation. Each line represents 1 patient in order of age (KIPyV-positive patients 1–10 and WUPyV-positive patients 1 and 2 are <20 years of age). Circles indicate specimen collection. Gray indicates detection of only KIPyV or WUPyV, black indicates detection of KIPyV or WUPyV and a respiratory virus, and white indicates negative results for KIPyV or WUPyV.
