Abstract

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:Solid organ transplant recipients have impaired cell-mediated immunity, and are at increased risk of mycobacterial infection. Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (TB) has a high mortality rate among this population. The diagnosis of tuberculosis in solid organ transplant recipients is a big challenge and needs rapid and accurate modalities. These patients have 3.8 time greater risk of developing extra-pulmonary TB than general population. High index of suspicion and applying with invasive diagnostic procedure are needed for diagnosis of TB in renal transplanted patients.
Keywords: Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Solid organ transplant, Immunosuppression
