Viral enteritis in solid-organ transplantation

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Solid organ transplant recipients are at increased risk for infections due to chronic immu-nosuppression. Diarrhea is a commonly encountered problem post transplantation, with infectious causes of diarrhea being a frequent complication. Viral infections/enteritides in solid organ transplant recipients often result from frequently encountered pathogens in this population such as cy-tomegalovirus, adenovirus, and norovirus. However, several emerging viral pathogens are increas-ingly being recognized as more sensitive diagnostic techniques become available. Treatment is often limited to supportive care and reduction in immunosuppression, though antiviral therapies may-play a role in the treatment in certain diseases. Viral enteritis is an important entity that contributes to morbidity and mortality in transplant recipients.
