Infection affects all kidney transplant recipients in one form or another. Over 50% of the transplant patients have at least one infection in the first year following transplantation; and for those individuals lucky enough to make it through the first year without an infectious complication, they will be indirectly affected too, as they must take prophylactic medications. With high rates of mortality and graft loss owing to infections, it is imperative to render early diagnosis and treatment to immunosuppressed patients. We present here an unusual case, one year post transplant, who had three different opportunistic infections, all at the same time, and who finally succumbed to them.
