Renal transplant recipients are susceptible to a variety of infections with both common and opportunistic pathogens as a result of immunosuppressive therapy. We report herein a case of a 32-year-old female renal transplant recipient who developed pulmonary tuberculosis with supraglotic mass causing suffocation, 1.7 years after undergoing renal transplantation. She responded well to a combination of tracheostomy and antituberculous therapy. Although tuberculosis is a common infection in transplant recipients, its presentation as a supraglotic mass is unusual.
