The purpose of this study was to determine the occurrence and histologic correlates of viral infections in immunocompromised patients with pneumonia. Of the 44 immunocompromised patients studied, 37 had AIDS. Lung tissue from these patients, including 34 with pneumocystis pneumonia, was evaluated by in situ hybridization for the presence of cytomegalovirus… CONTINUE READING
