Abstract

Though advances in immunosuppressive therapy have led to increased survival of renal transplant patients, but increased risk of developing infectious complications. Aspergillosis is a second common opportunistic fungal infection in a renal transplant patient. Lungs, brain and sinuses are the main targets of this fungal infection, but involvement of thyroid gland is rare. We report a case of disseminated aspergillosis with cutaneous aspergillosis and Aspergillus thyroiditis with thyrotoxicosis in a renal allograft patient.
