Concurrent infection of the urinary tract with Encephalitozoon cuniculi and Enterocytozoon bieneusi in a renal transplant recipient - Abstract

A urinary tract coinfection, caused by Encephalitozoon cuniculi genotype II and Enterocytozoon bieneusi genotype D, was identified in an HIV-seronegative renal transplant recipient kept under lifelong immunosuppression.

To our knowledge, this is the first report describing concurrent infection with these two microsporidia species in organ transplant recipients.
