Post transplant infection is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires supportive care and preventive treatment. Due to immunosuppression and neutropenia, transplant patients are susceptible to a variety of bacterial, fungal, and viral infections. Prophylactic antibiotic therapy, antifungal agents, and vaccinations are used to reduce risk of infection.

Leukocyte-reduced blood products also will lower the risk of transmission of CMV to an immunosuppressed patient. Other important preventive measures include skin care and oral hygiene
