Pulmonary mucormycosis is rare in solid organ transplant recipients. Only one case has been reported previously in a cardiac allograft recipient. However, the Rhizopus species in that study was not identified.

A review of the literature on pulmonary mucormycosis occurring in solid organ transplant recipients is also presented.
