Infections continue to be a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in renal transplant recipients, as they are susceptible to opportunistic infections. During the first post- transplant year, two thirds of transplant recipients experience at least one infection. Infectious agents commonly implicated are BK polyoma virus, Cytomegalo virus and Ebstein Barr virus. Filamentous fungal infections are rare in the kidney. 5% of infections in transplant recipients are due to fungi.We report a rare case of isolated renal graft mucormycosis.
