Infections are the most common cause of morbidity and mortality in renal transplant recipients; respiratory, urinary, and gastrointestinal infections are the most common. Gastrointestinal manifestations are usually associated with cytomegalovirus. Although opportunistic infections are common in solid organ transplant recipients in view of the immunosuppressed state, amoebic liver abscess is uncommon in renal transplant recipients and has not been reported in literature, to the best of our knowledge. We describe a patient with an amoebic liver abscess 3 months after renal transplantation surgery.
