Despite the large number of organ transplants performed yearly, to date there have been no reports of candidal splenic abscess. We describe here the first case of candidal splenic abscess in a renal transplant recipient treated successfully by splenectomy and amphotericin B. Despite a lengthy illness, the patient recovered with preservation of renal function.
