Abstract

We report on a case of disseminated toxoplasmosis that occurred 39 days after unrelated bone marrow transplantation in a patient in good clinical and hematologic condition. The clinical course was characterized by presentation of septic shock and the evolution of sudden and rapidly overwhelming respiratory failure which was unresponsive to emergency and anti-shock therapy. Disseminated toxoplasmosis was diagnosed at autopsy.
