With the advent of potent immunosuppressive therapies, renal transplant recipients are more susceptible to a variety of infections with atypical pathogens and presentations. In the setting of many years post-renal transplant, weight loss may be due to occult systemic fungal infection and if left untreated it may evolve with multisystem involvement. We describe a case with significant weight loss who got admitted for the evaluation for post-transplant lympho- proliferative disorder. The 30-year-old male patient presented with weight loss eight years post- renal transplant and detailed evaluation revealed systemic fungal infection involving cutaneous, pulmonary, and hematopoietic systems.
