BACKGROUND Human adenoviruses (HAdV) can cause disseminated disease as a severe complication after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT) and may originate from the reactivation of latent infections. However, data about the clinical relevance of HAdV DNAaemia and disease in adults are scarce. OBJECTIVES To retrospectively analyse the outcome of adult allogeneic SCT recipients with high HAdV loads in peripheral blood. STUDY DESIGN Our diagnostic database was screened for allogeneic… CONTINUE READING
