Abstract

We report the case of a 52-year-old man who underwent a renal transplantation and subsequently developed extrapulmonary tuberculosis. The immunosuppressive agent was intravenously administered continuously together with antituberculosis drugs. The tuberculosis improved and renal function has been well preserved for more than 3 years post transplantation.
