Conclusions Our study demonstrates for the first age the existence of BK virus in Romania, and we believe it opens the prospective of
diagnosing BKVN in high-risk patients in our nation in the prospect. In renal transplant patients from our center, we found
the prevalence of BK virus infection to be as high as 100%. The prevalence of hepatitis B and CMV was also remarkably high.
In patients with BKVN, the reduction of immunosuppression enables the spontaneous resolution of the disease.
