SARS-CoV-2 and Norovirus Co-Infection after Lung Transplantation


Steinack, Carolin; Hage, René; Benden, Christian; Schuurmans, Macé M (2020). SARS-CoV-2 and Norovirus Co-Infection after Lung Transplantation. Transplantology, 1(1):16-23.

Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which is spreading as a pandemic in 2020. Few reports on infections in thoracic transplantation have been published so far. We present a case of COVID-19 in a 55-year old female lung transplant recipient infected 5 months posttransplant, who additionally was co-infected with a Norovirus. Respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms were observed without need of therapeutic escalation except for antibiotic therapy. We observed a moderate disease evolution likely due to triple immunosuppression.
