Increased mortality of COVID-19 has been reported in older patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, lung disease and immunocompromised people such as kidney transplant recipients. Both the behavior of the viral infection and the treatments proposed so far interact with the state of immunosuppression and immunosuppressants. Herein, we report two cases of kidney transplant recipients with COVID-19 infection. The first patient presented with gastrointestinal symptoms and progressively advanced to multilobar pneumonia. The second case presented with fever accompanied by gastrointestinal and urinary symptoms and dry cough. Both patients responded appropriately to treatment.
