Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) disease (COVID-19) is usually mild in general population, while in renal transplant patients, it can turn fatal. Some patients suffer from post COVID-19 secondary bacterial and fungal infections due to virus-induced immunosuppression. We here report a case of immediate post renal transplant patient who contracted COVID-19 illness and later developed pneumonitis which on BAL was found to be due to Aspergillus fumigatus. Through this case report, the author aims to highlight the importance of keeping check on post COVID-19 secondary opportunistic infections in post renal transplant patients. Early diagnosis with high index of suspicion is essential to start timely and effective treatment.

The National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organization (NOTTO) has previously published transplant-specific guidelines with reference to COVID-19.([1]) The mortality is higher in dialysis patients with COVID-19 (12%-30%) than posttransplant COVID-19 patients (11.3%) and both are higher than the general population (<2%) in India.([2-5]) With the resumption of the kidney transplant program in various parts of India, new issues are expected to occur. There is uncertainty, regarding the safety of performing kidney,([ 6-8]) liver,([9-12]) and lunge([13]) transplantation in a recipient recently recovered from COVID-19. At present, we have limited evidence-based information about safety and feasibility of kidney transplantation from living donors, who have recovered from COVID-19.([4]) Recently, Indian Multi-center cohort studies have reported successful kidney transplantation in recipients from living donors with a previous diagnosis of COVID-19.([15, 16])
