Abstract

Adenovirus infection is usually mild respiratory tract infection in children and adult, but rarely cause lobar pneumonia and complicated with respiratory failure and acute respiratory distress syndrome in adult. We present a case of 36-year-old male with acute respiratory viral infection and complicated with lobar pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome and even death finally. Both throat and sputum viral culture and serology of serum proved the evidence of adenovirus infection. We reviewed the literatures and discussed the case for more differential diagnosis and treatment.
