Abstract

Authors report a case of P. carinii pneumonia in a child with 5% CD4 lymphocytes (absolute number 5/μl) after autologous bone marrow transplantation followed by pulmonary irradiation. Serial evaluation of CD4 lymphocyte count or percentage or, at least, detection of significant and persistent lymphopenia could be useful for detecting a high risk of developing P. carinii pneumonia.
