Abstract

In both adults and children, enteroviruses are the most common cause of aseptic meningitis, and a brief and benign course is typical. We describe the first reported cases of enteroviral meningitis in Solid Organ Transplant (SOT) recipients and note a prolonged duration of symptoms. Further, our cases illustrate the utility of the rapid enterovirus Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) in avoiding unnecessary antibiotics and diagnostic studies.
