Author information

Pediatric Nephrology, Dr Sami Ulus Childrens and Maternity Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.


Influenza virus is a common human pathogen that has the potential to cause widespread pandemics. The last pandemic began in April 2009 in CA, USA and killed about 14,000 people since then. The virus affects people at all ages, and school-aged children have the highest rates of infection. Chronic lung disease, immunosuppression and pregnancy are risk factors for seasonal influenza and pandemic influenza as well. Here, we report five immunosuppressive patients due to various diseases infected with H1N1 influenza and who were completely revealed after promptly treatment with oseltamivir.
