Abstract

The diagnostic strategy used to determine the cause of a respiratory infection in immunocompromised patients is presented in this article. Flexible fiber optic bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage and possible transbronchial lung biopsy is often the initial diagnostic procedure used. Respiratory infections in bone marrow transplant recipients, solid organ transplant recipients, and other immunocompromised patients without HIV are discussed.
