Abstract

The burden of tuberculosis after pediatric solid organ transplant or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has not been well characterized. We report 7 pediatric cases with disseminated (4/7) or pulmonary (3/7) tuberculosis after solid organ transplant (n=6) or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (n=1) during 26 years. The outcome was favorable in 6 patients. Isoniazid-induced hepatitis and rifampin interactions were common.
