Adenovirus (AV) infection usually has a benign course in normal hosts; however, in immunocompromised patients, AV may cause pneumonia, cystitis, or disseminated disease with substantial morbidity and even mortality. Although pulmonic AV involvement is common, infection of the kidney is unusual. The histologic findings previously described include tubular necrosis with interstitial inflammation and glomerulonephritis. We report a case of an AV-induced unilateral mass lesion in the kidney of a patient with Hodgkin's disease (HD) following bone marrow transplantation.
