To the Editor,

We read the publication on “transplant recipients with cytomegalovirus (CMV) and BK polyomavirus (BKV) co-infection nephropathy” with great interest. Kaul et al concluded that “coinfection did not pose an increased risk for acute rejection or patients and death-censored and death-uncensored graft survival among compared groups.[1]” We would like to share ideas and experience from out setting in tropical Indochina. In the study by Kaul et al, there is no assessment for odd ratio, therefore, it might not be possible to conclude about the risk. In a previous study in Thailand, it was approved that the coinfection with CMV was an important factor that results in increased risk of BKV-associated nephropathy in transplant recipients. Another important factor that can result in increased risk is the “deceased donor transplantation.[2]” Regardless of coinfection, BKV reactivation is also common in female and elderly patients.[3]

Conflict of interest: None declared.
