Abstract :
Recently, I read the published article by Moshkani Farahani et al. entitled “Infective endocarditis after renal transplantation”, published in the January 2014 issue of NephroUrol Monthly Nephro-Urology Monthly (1), and found it very interesting. Nephro-Urology Monthly They retrospectively collected the data of infective endocarditis (IE) among the patients with allograft renal transplantation. Interestingly, the time of presentation after transplantation ranged widely from two to 120 months, and most frequent obtained pathologic microorganisms were Enterococcus, group D non-streptococcus, streptococcus, and Staphylococcus aurous. The diagnosed disease had a wide range of presentation and brain abscess was found frequently (7 out of 22 patient). Overall, their patients had one-year survival of around 50%. Organ transplant recipients are at increased risk of IE.
