Tuberculosis in solid organ transplant recipients is associated with relatively high morbidity and mortality and is often extra-pulmonary. Reactivation of dormant infection is the usual mode of acquisition with donor and nosocomial transmission occurring infrequently. We report two cases of probable donor transmitted extra-pulmonary infection where both isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis proved to be indistinguishable using hemi-nested inverse PCR of the IS6110 region.
