  1. Data from clinical charts and laboratory information system is restricted to its availibility (not for patients who died) and to the phase of antiviral treatment. One gangciclovir treated patient was excluded for calculation of the daily acyclovir dose. The different variables are shown as medians, followed by the interquartile ranges in brackets [IQR] and finally added by the number (n) of values availibe. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was calculated by MDRD Equation and only listed if the estimated GFR was below 60 ml/min/1.73m2
