    Infections remain a serious and common problem in lung transplant recipients. Recent years have seen an explosion in the knowledge regarding this major cause of morbidity and mortality. Novel diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are revolutionizing the approach to infectious diseases in transplant recipients. Multicenter trials will expand the scope of diagnosis and management of these infections. A team approach by transplant physicians and infectious diseases experts is critical to the success of managing these complex patients.
