This is the first case report from Turkey to describe a renal transplant complicated by subcutaneous blastomycosis and BK infection. The cutaneous lesions were successfully treated with amphotericin B and fluconazole. The presence of BK infection led to graft failure. Infections with uncommonly seen organisms should be kept in mind due to the impaired T-cell immunity in transplantation.
