Diseases of the genitourinary tract in association with the BK virus (BKV) infec­tion are increasing among renal allograft recipients. We herewith report a young, female renal transplant recipient who presented with allograft dysfunction secondary to proximal ureteric stenosis. The allograft function improved dramatically after correction and stenting of the ste­nosis. Our case suggests that screening for BKV infection should be an integral part of evaluation of allograft dysfunction.
