Candidal infections occur commonly in renal transplant recipients especially in genitourinary system. Although the epidemiology of candiduria has not been well characterized in renal transplant population, it is the most common cause of fungal infections. However, candidal psoas abscess is very rare in the literature. We report a 42-year-old male renal transplant recipient with prolonged pyuria and candiduria followed by candidal psoas abscess formation. The treatment consisted of prolonged antifungal therapy along with percutaneous drainage. However, eventually, a surgical drainage had to be performed for the successful eradication.
