Self-limited adenoviral infections are very common with the majority of infections resolving rapidly. Fatal complications may occur in severely immunocompromised patients. We describe a case of fulminant hepatic failure due to adenovirus in a 54-year-old man treated with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. There are no previous reports of this complication in conjunction with purine nucleoside therapy.
