Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Pandemic influenza virus has been implicated in serious lower airways illness and death in subjects both with and without underlying medical conditions. Predictive factors for severe disease in healthy individuals have not been identified.

CASE REPORT:

Severe A(H1N1)-associated pneumonia occurring in a healthy subject without underlying medical conditions sequential to a Clamidophila pneumoniae infection, is reported.

CONCLUSION:

A potential synergistic mechanism by which other pathogens could interfere with the clinical course of A(H1N1) infection, is suggested.
