Seasonal influenza virus has been described as an emerging and severe pathogen in immunocompromised hosts. Since the beginning of the 2009 influenza A novel H1N1 pandemic, several series have described the clinical course of the disease in various populations.

Disease was characterized by a clinical picture similar to that of non-immunocompromised patients but with prolonged course and higher mortality
