Abstract

BK virus (BKV) nephritis is an important infectious complication following kidney transplantation. It can lead to premature graft loss and impact survival. The overall increase in the use of potent immunosuppressants has been implicated in its higher incidence. The diagnostic techniques have improved but the treatment is still elusive. We present a case series of four patients with BKV nephropathy and their therapeutic management.
