We describe 6 cases of invasive fungal diseases in the post kidney transplant setting. These include 2 cases each of mucormycosis and Aspergillosis and 1 case each of pheohyphomycosis and histoplasmosis. Our case series includes the first described case of aspergillus sacroilitis post kidney transplant and also reviews the literature on various modalities of treatment of fungal infections, follow up, diagnostic modalities and appropriate drug choices.
