Clostridium difficile infections cause morbidity and mortality. The authors conducted a retrospective review of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in kidney transplant recipients at their center over a 3 year period. The overall rate of CDI was 6.1% and increased over time during the study. A case-control study was subsequently performed to determine the risk factors […]

Chronic diarrhea is a clinical dilemma in transplantation and often no specific cause is found.  Norovirus/sapovirus are enteric viruses that are increasingly recognized as a cause of chronic diarrhea in transplant patients.  In this retrospective study, kidney transplant patients hospitalized for diarrhea were studied.  Of the 41 patients with chronic diarrhea, about half were screened […]

Diarrhea is a common complication post-transplant. and often ascribed to mycophenolic acid toxicity. In this retrospective, single-centre study, a significant number of patients with chronic diarrhea showed evidence of norovirus or sapovirus infection. Viral shedding was prolonged, and was frequently associated with acute kidney injury. Larger, prospective studies will be needed to prove whether these […]
