St. Jude finds risk factors for severe RSV infection in immunocompromised children
Date:2/4/2008

for RSV infection. Among these children, 23 (40 percent) had acute lymphoblastic leukemia, 11 (19 percent) had solid tumors and 24 patients (41 percent) had acute myeloid leukemia (AML), severe combined immunodeficiency syndrome (SCIDS), or had undergone bone marrow transplantation. RSV disease in these infected children was classified as upper respiratory track infection only or lower respiratory tract infection; and children with both upper and lower respiratory track infections, were defined as having lower respiratory track infection.

Overall, 16 (28 percent) of these children developed lower respiratory track infection, due to RSV. The frequency of this type of infection was highest (42 percent) in patients who had undergone HSCT or who had AML or SCIDS. Five patients (31 percent) with LRTI died, an overall mortality rate of 8.6 percent. All deaths occurred in lower respiratory track infection patients who were severely immunocompromised from their cancer, from chemotherapy or from the HSCT.
