Abstract

Ureaplasma urealyticum is a bacterial species correlated with urethritis in healthy individuals and invasive infections in immunocompromised patients. We describe a 20-year-old female with a history of remote heart transplant on everolimus, mycophenolate, and rituximab presenting with progressive urinary tract symptoms, renal failure, and neurologic symptoms. An extensive workup ultimately identified U urealyticum infection, and the patient successfully recovered after a course of azithromycin and doxycycline.
