Solid organ transplant recipients carry a high burden of disease and are susceptible to opportunistic infections not seen in other patient subgroups. Signs and symptoms that would not necessarily warrant timely attention in other patient groups may call for an aggressive workup in this subset of patients. Here, we present one case in which a seemingly trivial complaint denoted serious underlying pathology, and timely attention to this minor but unusual concern led to early intervention with appropriate treatment of an uncommon disorder.
