Abstract

A case of fatal disseminated aspergillosis in a renal transplant patient is presented. The initial manifestation of the disease was consistent with thyroiditis. Autopsy findings are shown and support this unique presentation. The diagnosis of aspergillosis is difficult to make and may require pulmonary biopsy. Early diagnosis and treatment with amphotericin B are the keys to successful management of the disease.
