About This Topic

Infections in solid organ transplant patients are a real challenge in everyday clinical practice. Just think of the adversities due to the worsening problem of infections by multidrug-resistant germs. And while bacterial infections are increasingly a challenge, viral infections, such as SARS-CoV-2 and CMV, are also often a challenge in this category of patients. In this regard, this special issue on solid organ transplant infections aims to present and show what are the current events and perspectives regarding the epidemiological aspects and management of bacterial and viral infections in solid organ transplant patients.
