The rapid spread of West Nile virus (WNV) in North America, the constant changing in epidemiology, virulence and the unexpected findings of the potential for blood transfusion and transplant-associated transmission has highlighted the gaps in our knowledge concerning the pathogenesis and different modes of transmission of this virus.
