Abstract


Introduction: The human bocavirus is associated with respiratory tract infections and has been shown to infect virtually all age groups. However, the majoritiy of HBoV infections is observed in children, on the one hand because this group of patients receives a broader diagnostics, on the other hand because up to the age of five years all people have passed the primary infection and developed antibodies. Thus, there is limited knowledge about the HBoV infection in adults.
Case presentation: A case of persistent pleural effusion associated with an infection with human bocavirus (HBoV) is reported. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case in which HBoV has been found in the pleura during an active infection in an adult patient.
Conclusion: HBoV infection can lead to serious disease in adults and can affect also the pleura.
