What is Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus (LCMV)?

Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM) is a rare infectious disease that has been found to occur in some patients who received an organ transplant; however, pregnant women are thought to be at risk as well. The infection is caused by a virus called "lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV)", which is carried by the common house mice and other rodents.
