Abstract

The success of bone marrow transplantation in the treatment of aplastic anemia and acute leukemia has resulted in an increasingly large number of long-term survivors of this procedure. The occurrence of infections in these patients has been recognized as a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in those patients in whom chronic graft-v-host disease develops. Streptococcus pneumoniae has been noted to cause a substantial portion of the reported infections, and it has been suggested that immunization with polyvalent pneumococcal vaccine and long-term antibiotic prophylaxis be used to prevent this complication.
