INTRODUCTION: Adenovirus is not a common etiology of pneumonia in pregnant women.

CASE PRESENTATION: A 28-year-old pregnant woman at 26+4 weeks of gestation was presented with prolonged high grade fever for five days, accompanied by rigors, malaise, and cough with purulent sputum. Blood tests showed lymphocytopenia, and double increase of liver enzymes, and increased CRP. She got increasingly respiratory distress and received non-invasive ventilation despite of broad-spectrum antibiotics for 5 days. Chest ultrasound showed left-sided moderate free-flowing pleural effusion. Thoracentesis analysis showed exudative pleural effusion with lymphocyte predominated. A low-dose chest computed tomography with abdomen protection revealed massive left lung consolidation and patchy infiltrates in right middle and lower lobes (figure 1). After appropriate supportive care and obstetrical management, she was fully recovered and was discharged on day 18. PCR, nested PCR and gene sequencing of nasopharyngeal aspirates were finally positive for adenovirus type 7, which was confirmed by more than four-fold elevation of IgG titer of adenovirus type 7. On follow-up, she had a natural delivery at 39+2 weeks of gestation, the baby is so far healthy at regular follow-up by 17 month.
