Severe Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia in an idiopathic CD4+ lymphocytopenia patient: case report and review of the literature

Abstract : When diagnosing Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP), the clinical suspicion must be confirmed by laboratory tests. PJP is rarely described in patients with idiopathic CD4+ lymphocytopenia (ICL), a rare T-cell deficiency of unknown origin with persistently low levels of CD4+ T-cells (<300 µl-1 or <20 % of total lymphocytes) but repeated negative human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) tests. We retrospectively analysed a case of an ICL patient with severe PJP associated with multiple opportunistic infections (OIs). We also reviewed the literature since 1986.
