ABSTRACT
Objective To investigate the clinical diagnosis and treatment of pneumocystis carinii pneumonia(PCP) after kidney transplantation. Methods Eight patients who developed PCP between 90 days and 140 days following renal transplantation were enrolled in this study.All of them were male with a mean age of 28 years.The clinical manifestations,accessory examinations and treatment were retrospectively analyzed. Results All the 8 patients fully recovered.With early diagnosis and administration of compound sulfamethoxazole(SMZ),clinical symptoms of 6 patients were rapidly controlled within 5 to 7 days.Because of delayed diagnosis and treatment,the conditions of the other 2 cases were more severe and were controlled within 25 days and 46 days separately. Conclusions Application of percutaneous pneumocentesis biopsy can be useful for correct diagnosis in early stage of PCP and has high positive rate of the pathogen. Most PCP patients can be cured with early use of SMZ.Types and doses of immunosuppressor should be adjusted properly.
