Post-renal transplant fungal infections continue to be a major cause of mortality and morbidity. Universally reported fungi are Candida, especially Candida albicans, Cryptococcus, Aspergillus, Trichophyton rubrum and Pityriasis versicolor. Here, we report a case of infection caused by a rare fungus Diaporthe. It is an endophyte reported as plant pathogens and infrequently in humans and mammals. The patient was a renal transplant recipient on immunosuppressant. He had hypothyroidism and diagnosed with permanent pacemaker due to a complete heart block. The patient was treated with itraconazole (200 mg) successfully.
