Abstract

We describe the case of a 37 year-old diabetic woman who presented with a multiloculated perinephric abscess caused by Streptococcus agalactiae 12 months after receiving a living-related kidney graft. Infection was successfully treated with surgical drainage and a four-week course of antibiotic therapy. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a perinephric abscess caused by this agent in a renal transplant recipient.
