Adenoviruses are increasingly recognized as contributors to morbidity and mortality among stem cell and solid-organ transplant recipients. Clinical presentations range from asymptomatic viremia to respiratory and gastrointestinal disease, hemorrhagic cystitis, and severe disseminated illness. The limited clinical data available support the use of cidofovir for many of these illnesses. Prospective studies are needed to better understand the pathogenesis of and therapeutic options for adenoviral infections in this patient population.
