Abstract
In Brief Background The diagnostic yield for cytomegalovirus (CMV) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) viral load in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) or in plasma to diagnose CMV pneumonia in lung transplant recipients remains uncertain and was investigated in a large cohort of consecutive lung transplant recipients. Methods Bronchoscopies within the first year of lung transplantation with CMV detectable in BAL by PCR (ie, viral load, ≥273 IU/mL) were...
