Abstract

Recipients with a low immunity are under a high risk of infection due to the extensive use of immunosuppressive drugs after renal transplantation. Pulmonary infection after renal transplantation is a prevalent postoperative complication characterized by a wide range of pathogens and high mortality. If the disease cannot be diagnosed in time, then the therapeutic effect will not be effective. This article reviews susceptible factors, high onset time, common pathogens, clinical manifestations, and therapy of pulmonary infection after renal transplantation to provide reference for disease prevention and treatment.
