Other viruses that cause infections in immunocompromised patients include the Epstein-Barr virus resulting in asymptomatic elevation in serum antibody titres or uncommonly in disseminated lymphoproliferative disorder, hepatitis B, C and delta viruses, respiratory syncytial virus, varicella-zoster and influenza viruses. Fungal infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. Infections due to Candida and Aspergillus are the most frequent. The most common site of Candida infections is the oral mucosa, but disseminated infections may occur.

Probably due to all these uncertainties, the term ‘allergy’ is often used undiscriminatingly to describe these reactions. ‘Hypersensitivity’ or ‘hyperergia’, which suggest an abnormal susceptibility of the affected patient, whatever the mechanism involved, are suggested to be more appropriate terminology. Use of the term ‘allergy’, or better 37 38 An Introduction to Immunotoxicology ‘immuno-allergy’, should be restricted to those reactions that are presumably or clearly caused by an antigen-specific immune response.
