  • Background. BK virus renal allograft nephropathy (BKVAN) in the setting of simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation (SKPT) has been inadequately studied and reported. We analyzed our data on the incidence of BKVAN and its outcome in SKPT recipients at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and affiliated centers and report significant differences compared to previous studies. Methods. This study used retrospective review and case studies. Results. A review of 243 consecutive SKPT… CONTINUE READING
