Ureteritis due to human polyoma BK virus (BKV) is an emerging complication among renal transplant recipients mimicking rejection. The current mainstay of intervention is to reduce the immunosuppressive maintenance therapy. There is dilemma in management regarding surgical interventions like stenting besides reducing immunosuppression. The present case report highlights the successful management of BKV ureteritis with modification of immunosuppression and Double J stenting. A combination of immunosuppression modification and DJ stenting can help long-term graft outcome in patients with BKV ureteritis.
