Acute hemorrhagic cystitis caused by adenovirus type 11 after renal transplantation

Urol Int. 1986;41(2):152-5. doi: 10.1159/000281186.

Abstract

A case of acute hemorrhagic cystitis caused by adenovirus type 11, which occurred in an allograft recipient 6 months after a living-related renal transplantation, is described. The patient lacked a neutralizing antibody to adenovirus type 11 before transplantation. Adenovirus type 11 was isolated from his urine and he developed a neutralizing and complement-fixing antibody to this virus. Although adenovirus type 11 isolates had been obtained from 2 of 18 renal allograft recipients, only 1 patient suffered acute hemorrhagic cystitis. Adenovirus type 11 may play a role in acute hemorrhagic cystitis in renal allograft recipients during immunosuppressive therapy.
