Abstract: Although cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is common in renal transplant recipients, urinary tract involvement has been rare. Only six cases of symptomatic ureteritis have been reported in renal transplant recipients and all within the last five years. We describe an additional four cases of CMV ureteritis. The presentation of CMV ureteritis is obstructive nephropathy often in the absence of systemic illness. Presentation may also mimic allograft rejection with minimal obstructive symptoms. We hypothesize that CMV ureteritis is an emerging complication of CMV disease, possibly due to changes in transplant practice.
