Adenovirus Type 21 Outbreak Among Lung Transplant Patients at a Large Tertiary Care Hospital.
Here we summarize an April 2016, 7-patient cluster of human adenovirus (HAdV) infections in a cardiothoracic surgery intensive care unit. We show that the patients were infected with a single HAdV21b type. Rapid HAdV typing diagnostics and effective antiviral interventions are needed for immunocompromised patients suffering from HAdV infections.
