The renal transplant recipients are prone to the variety of infectious pathogens. The HRCT features could provide valuable information for differentiation diagnosis and treatment response. Findings in renal transplant recipients with manifestations of immune-compromised-related pulmonary diseases could be either pathogen-specific or -non-specific. It is particularly fundamental to recognize these imaging characteristics at suspicion of opportunistic infections in such patients. In this article, we present a review to refresh and update our knowledge of HRCT features of pulmonary infectious diseases in immune-compromised patients.
