Incidence and outcomes of respiratory viral infections in lung transplant recipients: a prospective study
This prospective study tracked viral infections and their outcomes in lung transplant patients 2008-2011 in a single institution. Respiratory viruses were identified in 174 of 903 encounters, 34 via BAL. Viral infection rates were 14% for non-emergency visits and 34% for emergency visits. Most viral infections were associated with symptoms and with transient lung function loss.
