Material and methods: Design, retrospective, cross-sectional and analytical. Is 2 groups, (Group 1) with positive and presence of inclusions and Ad (Group 2), where there was the simultaneous presence of Ad and positive blood cultures.Results: Pulmonary hypertension: Group 1: 3 patients, Group 2: 14 patients: p = 0.0006. Pulmonary hemorrhage: Group 1: 6 patients, Group 2: 13 patients: p = 0.04. Alveolar necrosis: Group 1: 4 patients, Group 2: 12 patients: p = 0.0176.Conclusions: Adenoviral inclusions without bacterial involvement, have a course with more damage to lung tissue, with a fatal outcome faster than adenoviral inclusions with positive blood cultures.Objective: Describe the clinical-pathological two groups of patients with inclusions adenoviral (Ad) in lung tissue samples obtained at autopsy. Hypothesis: It was assumed that the inclusions Ad with negative blood cultures are fatal faster than Ad inclusions with positive blood cultures.
