Renal transplant from a HBsAg positive living donor to a negative recipient is not routinely done due to risk of transmission of hepatitis B infection following transplantation. Such donors are usually rejected which further reduces the donor pool. We report a case of HBsAg negative recipient transplanted with a kidney from HBsAg positive donor who is free from chronic infection on one year follow up. This to best of our knowledge is first reported case in India.
