The incidence of fungal infection is significantly higher in patients with end­stage renal disease and renal transplant recipients than in normal individuals. Candidia Albicans is an uncommon cause of abdominal wall abscess. We describe a 37 year-old renal transplant recipient with such an infection. He presented with atypical clinical manifestations and an insidious course, but was successfully treated with antifungal therapy.
