AbstractAbstract PDF
Hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) is a common complication after allogeneic transplantation. Early posttransplant HC occurs in association with cyclophosphamide, while later on HC results from viral infections such as polyomavirus BK (BKV) and adenovirus. We report here the case of a 57-year-old woman who received an instillation of cidofovir into the bladder for the treatment of hemorrhagic cystitis after allogeneic peripheral stem cell transplantation for her acute myeloid leukemia. Cyclophosphamide and busulfan were used as conditioning treatments. Cyclosporin was administered daily. On the 71st day after transplantation, the patient developed acute severe hemorrhagic cystitis, and BK virus was demonstrated in the urine samples using polymerase chain reaction. Her urinary symptoms did not improve in spite of palliative treatment, but a response was evident after intravesical cidofovir treatment.
