Resumo The health care-related infections are well-known in a critical care setting, but reports of those infections in solid organ transplanted patients are scarce. We developed a study of retrospective cohort in a tertiary teaching hospital for 14 months. Eighty-one patients underwent solid organ transplants. The global incidence of health care-related infection was 42.0%. Fifteen percent of the cases were occurrences of surgical site infections, 14.0% pneumonias, 9.0% primary blood stream infections, 4.0% urinary tract infections and 2.0% skin infection. The most prevalent etiologic agents were K. pneumoniae (8.6%), P. aeruginosa (7.4%); A. baumannii (5.0%) and S. aureus (2.5%). Mortality was 18.0%, none of then related to health care infections. The high rate of those infections, mainly surgical site infections, suggests a demand for stricter measures to prevent and control health care-related infections.
