Fatal cytomegalovirus infection and coronary arterial thromboses after heart transplantation: a case report



Fatal cytomegalovirus infection and coronary arterial thromboses after heart transplantation: a case report



Journal of Heart Transplantation 6(2): 100-105



A 36-year-old woman died because of disseminated cytomegalovirus infection after a heart allograft transplantation was performed. Autopsy revealed that widespread coronary arterial thromboses were associated with cytomegalovirus infection of endothelial cells. Its possible pathogenetic mechanism and significance were discussed.
