Abstract

Allograft’s infection is one of the most common complication after lung transplantation. The etiology of pneumonia includes opportunistic and hospital acquired microorganisms. The most frequent are Pseudomonas aeruginosa, cytomegalovirus and Aspergillus fumigatus. Infection severity and time of occurence depend on prophylactic treatment. There are infections, specific to cystic fibrosis, that may play role in peri- and post-operative mortality. Differences occur among transplant centers as to which infections are contraindications for transplantation.
