Objective: In the article we are described the asymptomatic SARS-CoV2 PCR positive in recipient pre and post bone marrow transplantation. Methods: The donors and recipients with high risk disease and selected to bone marrow transplantation in April to June are submitted a nasopharyngeal and throat swab to collected PCR multiplex SARS-CoV2. Results: We have 5 patients asymptomatic with positive results. Three allogeneic recipient and two autologous. The two inpatients follow the program because we have the result after the end of condition, we use GCSF in both and none had febrile neutropenia.
