BACKGROUND Sepsis is a serious complication of solid organ transplant (SOT). Evidence on survival differences between SOT recipients and non-SOT patients with sepsis is lacking. METHODS This was a matched, case-control propensity-adjusted study. Conditional logistic regression was performed for risk factor analysis, and Cox proportional hazards regression for survival analysis.
