Abstract

Disseminated cryptococcosis with cryptococcemia occurred in a renal transplant patient in whom immunosuppression was continued throughout antifungal therapy in an effort to ensure graft viability. Despite the initial presence of positive fungal cultures of blood, urine, and CSF, infection cleared rapidly, and there has been no evidence of recurrence. Throughout this period, renal function remained unaltered. This favorable outcome suggests that the prognosis for the renal transplant recipient with disseminated cryptococcosis may be improved.
