Adenoviruses, myxo- and paramyxoviruses, usually responsible for benign infections in children, have been c. 30 JASMIN et al. also found in immunosuppressed patients. Other viruses have only rarely been incriminated. We have given special attention to pulmonary complications (Fig. 1) such as those described by CLARYSSE et al. (1969) in patients treated with methotrexate (MTX). The Acute Leukemia Group B has reported the occurrence of pulmonary complications in 38/93 (41%) of their patients with acute lymphoid leukemia during maintenance of remission with intermittent MTX.
1969). All throbocytopenic alloimmunized patients requiring platelet support were included in the study provided HL-A compatible donors were available. Transfusions of platelets to patients with sepsis, disseminated intravascular coagulation and splenomegaly are not reported, since these conditions may alter the response to platelet transfusions even in the absence of alloimmunization. When a donor was used repeatedly for a particular patient due to consistently good transfusion responses, the increments to only the first 2 transfusions were averaged for comparison with other donor-recipient pairs.
