Immunosuppression varies according to the underlying disease, and different patterns of complications may be encountered.

Among the complications of immunosuppressive treatments, infectious diseases are the most Author: Anne-Sophie Moreau. Reactivation of latent HHV-6 infection in immunocompromised patients, in particular those who have undergone allogenic stem cell transplantation, may result in an encephalitis, leptomeningitis, or neuritis (Sauter et al., ).The most common findings include symmetric or asymmetric high T2 signal within the uncus, amgydala, and hippocampal body with extension to the rhinal cortex and.

Because public water quality and treatment vary throughout the United States, always check with the local health department and water utility to see if they have issued any special notices about the use of tap water by immunocompromised persons.

A broad spectrum of renal diseases affecting glomerular, tubular and interstitial tissues had been documented in immunocompromised patients especially HIV infected patients.

Most of the renal manifestations represent complications of concurrent infections in a severely immunocompromised host, or side effects of the plethora of treatments. American Academy of Pediatrics. Immunization and Other Considerations in Immunocompromised Children.
