Abstract

LIMA, Thais Carneiro et al. Paracoccidioidomycosis in a liver transplant recipient. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.1, pp.138-140. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0037-8682-0282-2016.

Paracoccidioidomycosis is a granulomatous systemic mycosis that is endemic in Latin America; it is an extremely rare infection following solid organ transplantation. In this study, we describe the first report of disseminated paracoccidioidomycosis in a 3-year-old girl who underwent liver transplantation 2 years previously. The radiologic diagnosis and patient follow-up are described. In addition, we review the clinical evolution and treatment regimens for this infection.

Keywords : Paracoccidioidomycosis; Paracoccidioides brasiliensis; Organ transplant.
