Abstract

In 2017, most intensive care units (ICU) worldwide are admitting a growing population of immunosuppressed patients. The most common causes of pre-ICU immunosuppression are solid organ transplantation, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and infection due to human immunodeficiency virus. In this article, we review the most frequent infections that cause critical care illness in each of these 3 immunosuppressed patient populations.
