Juhi Taneja, Agrawal VK, Danish Jamal, Zafar Abbas

We report a case of pneumonia due to Rhizopus homothallicus in a post cardiac transplant and diabetic patient. This is the rare case of R. homothallicus infection described in India and first case described in post cardiac transplant patient worldwide. The organism was isolated from broncho alveolar lavage fluid and identified after culture followed by amplification and sequencing of the internal transcribed spacer region.
