Abstract

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients are at risk for common and atypical infections. Superior diagnostics can decrease infection-related morbidity and mortality. A novel plasma cell-free DNA next-generation sequencing test detected an uncommon presentation of Chlamydia trachomatis and recurrent and metastatic complications of Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia before standard microbiology.
