Abstract

Background. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common opportunistic viral infection that causes morbidity, graft loss, and mortality among renal transplant recipients (RTRs). The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of CMV infection on allograft function, graft/patient survival, and the possible asssociations between CMV infection and HLA typing.
