Pediatric kidney transplantation part 43

Children

 

ANTI-INFECTANTS

Your child has a higher risk of developing certain infections after kidney transplantation, particularly in the first few weeks to months. While not all infections can be prevented some of them can be prevented using anti-microbial and anti-viral medications. These antibiotics and anti-viral medications work to prevent or fight infections so your child can stay as healthy as possible while they get used to their new kidney. Different transplant programs give antibiotics and anti-viral medications for the first year after transplant and other patients may take them life-long. Sometimes they may be taken after being treated for a rejection episode, as this is when your child is usually given more immunosuppressants
