Disseminated Adenovirus Infection after Combined Liver-Kidney Transplantation
- 1Duke University, United States
Human adenovirus (HAdV) infections are well-described after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation but less well understood in solid organ transplantation (SOT). We describe a case of disseminated HAdV type 21 infection five months after combined liver-kidney transplantation, expanding the limited literature describing this infection in the SOT population.
