Resumen

ABARCA V, Katia et al. Disseminated and fatal adenovirus infection in an immunocompromised child. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2008, vol.25, n.2, pp.127-132. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182008000200008.

Severe adenovirus (ADV) infections have become increasingly important in immunocompromised patients, mainly in pediatric stem cell transplant recipients. We report a case of disseminated ADV infection leading to death in a 12-year-old stem cell transplant recipient. The diagnosis was confirmed by viral isolation and viral genome detection in tissues and blood. Main issues associated with infection, diagnosis and therapeutic alternatives are reviewed. This case should alert clinicians to suspect and study this agent in high risk patients and highlights the importance of having antiviral drugs for ADV available in Chile

Palabras clave : Adenovirus infection; human; immunocompromised host; bone marrow transplantation.
