AbstractTuberculosis is common among solid-organ transplant recipients, including renal transplants. Tuberculosis of the thyroid gland is a rare diagnosis. We report on a renal transplant recipient with subacute fever associated with a neck mass diagnosed as thyroid tuberculosis. No prior publication has reported a case of posttransplant thyroid tuberculosis. This is an important diagnostic consideration, in addition to malignant transformation, in the posttransplant setting.
