Preferential lower respiratory tract infection in swine-origin 2009 A(H1N1) influenza

Preferential lower respiratory tract infection in swine-origin 2009 A(H1N1) influenza

Clinical Infectious Diseases 50(3): 391-394

We report a case of 2009 influenza A(H1N1) virus infection in which virus was detected predominantly in specimens from the lower respiratory tract but was absent or at very low levels in nasopharyngeal swab samples. This presentation suggests that, in certain hosts or for particular variants of 2009 A(H1N1) virus, the lower respiratory tract may be the preferred site of infection.
