EBV viremia occurs frequently after transplantation and can be related to post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD). However, the consequences of the majority of viremia are unclear. Barnoulid et al. followed EBV viral loads in 383 kidney transplant patients during the first year post-transplant. 40% of patients had at least one detected viremia; viremia was more common […]

In this case series, 7 liver transplant patients with CIHHV-6 are described in addition to 14 cases already published in the literature. Although no patient had clinical symptoms related […]
