Solid organ transplantations (SOT) continue to increase in number, and infections remain one of, if not the most important factor affecting patient morbidity and mortality. The number of possible pulmonary infections in SOT is vast, which include community-acquired, nosocomial, and opportunistic pathogens. Incorporating additional information, such as characteristic imaging appearances, time from transplantation, and an approach to imaging features, the radiological differential diagnosis can be narrowed, allowing imaging to remain central in SOT patient management.
