Saprochaete capitata is a fungus that rarely causes human infections; majority of infections were reported in patients with hematological malignancies. Here, we report a case of Saprochaete capitata infection in a renal transplant recipient. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of infection with this unusual organism in renal transplant recipients. In our patient, this organism was isolated from broncho alveolar lavage, and it responded dramatically to the combination of amphotericin and voriconazole.
