ENCARNACION, Alexánder Alonso; ARIAS, Luis Fernando  and  CATANO, Juan Carlos. Clinicopathological conference (CPC): renal transplant recipient with pulmonary nodules. Iatreia [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.4, pp.398-407. ISSN 0121-0793.

We report the case of a 41 year-old man, who had a renal transplantation in 2005. He was admitted to the hospital because of 10 days of fever, diarrhea and respiratory symptoms. During his stay, a nodular lesion in the skin, several pulmonary nodules and colon ulcers were documented; due to his past medical history he was highly suspicious of having a fungal infection; antifungal therapy was started, but he died due to respiratory insufficiency.

Keywords : Kidney; Respiratory Insufficiency; Transplantation.
