Human adenoviruses still constitute a challenge in the clinical practice. These are DNA viruses that are widely disseminated among the population and often cause self-limiting diseases in children. However, it may result in a severe diseminated disease with high morbi-mortality rates in immunocompromised patients, in particular transplant recipients of hematopoietic cells and solid organs. The study shares the first national report for disseminated adenovirus disease, presenting two clinical cases of hepatic transplant recipients who developed severe disseminated adenovirus disease. And conducting a literature review on the topic.
