Phaeohyphomycosis is a rare fungal infection in renal transplant recipients. We describe here five cases of phaeohyphomycosis in renal transplant recipients, two with deep-seated unusual sites of infection. All patients received antifungals, and surgical excision was done where feasible. Outcomes included complete resolution of infection in three, partial resolution in one, and mortality in one case.
