Lung transplantation is getting to be a common treatment for the end-stage respiratory failure. Therefore we might encounter the various issues associated with infection under immunosuppression. At 1st, virus infections occur by Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, hepatitis B and C virus and John Cunningham virus. The 2nd, bacterial infections exacerbate graft condition by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas, Burkholderia cepacia and coagulase negative staphylococci. The 3rd, fungal infections are induced by Aspergillus, Candida and Cryptococcus. Lastly there is mycobacterial infection. These opportunistic infections contribute poor prognosis for lung transplant recipients, so that we have to manage these infectious diseases.
