Rights and Permissions

Prolonged use of immunosuppressive medication is associated with an increased sus­ceptibility to viral, bacterial and fungal infections. This paper reports a 42 year old kidney transplant recipient with 10 years of stable allograft function who developed pulmonary histoplasmosis and consequently lost his kidney. This report corroborates the previously proposed threat of infection with H. capsulatum for kidney allograft rejection.
