Abstract: We report a case of Pneumocystis jirovecii transmission from colonized grandparents to their infant granddaughter. Genotyping of P. jirovecii showed the same genotypes in samples from the infant and her grandparents. These fi ndings support P. jirovecii transmission from immunocompetent carrier adults to a susceptible child.
