Abstract

We have demonstrated the long-term excretion of a stable recombinant norovirus in a patient with cartilage hair hypoplasia (CHH), with a T cell immunodeficiency, following bone marrow transplantation (BMT). The patient excreted an ARG320/1999/US-like recombinant norovirus (rGII-3) for 156 days during a period of immune reconstitution. The child was symptomatic during the period of virus shedding. It is not known if the child acquired the recombinant strain or if recombination occurred in vivo.
