Polyomavirus BK viral allograft nephropathy is a potentially reversible cause of deteriorating function of kidney allografts. Initial treatment involves reducing immunosuppressive medications, with low-dose cidofovir an effective alternative in refractory cases. We describe two cases of BK viral allograft nephropathy responding to low-dose cidofovir after a reduction in immunosuppressive medications failed to clear the virus or stabilize the deterioration in renal function. There were no… CONTINUE READING
