Abstract

Abstract.

Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is an endemic systemic mycosis that is of great importance in Latin America. Its occurrence in solid organ transplantation (SOT) is rare, but with high mortality rate. In this report, we describe a case of PCM in a liver transplant recipient 19 months after transplantation. The patient presented with multiple skin abscesses, arthritis, osteolytic lesions, and pulmonary and adrenal involvement. Despite the presence of disseminated disease and the patient’s immunosuppressed condition, the patient responded well to prolonged antifungal treatment with no sequelae, thus suggesting that early diagnosis and correct treatment may lead to favorable outcomes in SOT recipients with PCM.
