Despite significant advances in the field of renal transplantation, long-term graft survival has not dramatically increased. The reasons for this are varied but include the persistent impact of infectious diseases on transplant recipients. Viral infections continue to be a potential contributor to graft failure, but also a cause of severe mortality and morbidity. We hereby present a case of early posttransplant dual viral infection detected and treated during the initial 2 months and discuss the risk factors which were involved, potential preventive strategies and therapies that could be helpful in treating such patients.
