Prolonged shedding of influenza virus has been reported in immunocompromised patients. Delayed viral clearance may contribute to antiviral resistance and nosocomial transmission. We report a case of a pancreas-after-kidney transplant recipient who had detectable pandemic influenza A virus for 12 months. Pyrosequencing analysis detected the H275Y mutation, which is associated with resistance to oseltamivir.
