Abstract

We conducted a case-control study of 18 US transplant recipients with Rhodococcus infection and 36 matched controls. The predominant types of infection were pneumonia and bacteremia. Diabetes mellitus and recent opportunistic infectio were independently associated with disease. Outcomes were generally favorable except for 1 relapse and 1 death.
