solve partial differential equations with mathematica

I'd like to solve the following partial differential equation with

eqn = D[u[r, t], t] == d D[u[r, t], r, r] - k u[r, t]/r

by doing:

DSolve[{eqn, u[r, 0] == 0, u[0.000000001, t] == ui, u[\[Infinity], t]
== 0}, u[r, t], {r, t}]

d,k and ui are constants.

In DSolve i include also the boundary conditions but I am still not
able to solve it.
Do you have any suggestions for solving the problem?
Thanks very much for your help.
