The availability of newer molecular techniques for diagnosis of active infections may offer opportunities for earlier intervention (Table 2-14) [132]. Chapter 2 Viruses 35 Table 2-13. Adenovirus Clinical Syndromes. Anatomic location/syndrome Symptoms/presentation Upper respiratory tract infection Pharyngitis and coryza, laryngitis or otitis media with fever and malaise Conjunctivitis Usually with pharyngitis; epidemic form associated with subgroup D and painful bilateral conjunctivitis and blurring of vision Pneumonitis Dyspnea, cough and fever, with or without upper respiratory tract signs and symptoms accompanied by often diffuse bilateral pulmonary infiltrates; significant mortality in immunocompromised, especially with bacterial or fungal superinfection Gastroenteritis Acute diarrheal illness with fever or other systemic signs and symptoms Hepatitis Fever, elevated hepatic transaminases, hepatic necrosis, and fulminant hepatic failure in patients after HSCT [127] Nephritis Renal failure with possible prodrome of fever, hematuria, and flank pain after HSCT [128] Hemorrhagic cystitis Fever, gross hematuria, anemia, pain Meningoencephalitis Fever, headache, and confusion reported in children during an adenovirus outbreak [129] HSCT Hematopoietic stem cell transplant Table 2-14.

Most experts recommend extending therapy for at least 2 days beyond crusting of all lesions. Resistance is rare, reported most often in patients with underlying HIV infection [26].

Repletion of antibodies in hypogammaglobulinemic hosts may be useful. Currently, palivizumab, a monoclonal antibody directed toward RSV, has only been studied as a prophylactic agent in children at risk of respiratory complications from RSV infection. Trials investigating its use as a therapeutic agent in combination with ribavirin are reportedly ongoing [168]. It is well-tolerated in the HSCT population [169] and was successful at treating RSV pneumonitis in combination with corticosteroids in a case report of a women with relapsed Hodgkin’s disease after autologous HSCT [170].
