Abstract

Although adenoviruses are a recognized cause of serious pulmonary and disseminated disease among stem cell transplant recipients, their importance in other immunocompromised patient populations is less clearly documented. We present a case of a person with AIDS who was receiving chemotherapy for Burkitt lymphoma in whom fatal adenovirus pneumonia and adenoviremia developed, and we review the published literature on adenovirus infection in the setting of HIV disease.
