Abstract

Adenoviruses are increasingly realised to be responsible for serious morbidity and mortality following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. We describe a case of fulminant hepatic failure due to adenovirus serotype 2 in a 39-year-old woman who received a matched sibling allogeneic bone marrow transplant for multiply relapsed Hodgkin's disease. Isolated fulminant hepatic failure caused by this serotype of adenovirus has not previously been described.
