Introduction: Oral candidiasis in renal transplant patients is common. The most common types are acute atrophic (erythematous) and acute pseudo-membranous (thrush), even in renal transplant patients. Hyperplastic variant is uncommon even in transplant patients. Case: We report a 42-year-old female, post-cadaveric renal transplant recipient who developed hyperplastic oral candidiases on the dorsum of the tongue. Patient was on immunosuppressants and developed post-operative acinetobacter pneumonia. With a combination of anti-fungals, antibiotics and supportive care patient was successfully treated and discharged home.
