Abstract

Infective complications were analysed in 74 patients who underwent renal transplantation. Bacterial infections were seen in 69%, viral infections in 48% and fungal infections in 17% of these patients. The urinary tract was involved in 56% of patients, the lungs in 24% and the upper respiratory tract in 17%. Less common were cellulitis (7%), CNS infections (4%), and other sites of infection.
