Abstract

Respiratory tract infections pose a threat to hematopoietic stem cell recipients, increasing morbidity and mortality rates. To address this, preventive measures are of great importance. We describe the early detection of influenza B in a patient who received a recent hematopoietic transplantation, and elucidation of the transmission path using a point-of-care multiplex polymerase chain reaction panel, leading to prevention of viral spread. The use of risk-score systems and point-of-care testing should be further evaluated.
