While many cases of cytomegalovirus (CMV) nephropathy have been reported in the literature, isolated CMV glomerulopathy is considered a rare finding.
We report the case of a CMV-negative recipient of kidney allograft from a CMVpositive donor (D+/R-), the recipient subsequently developed severe nephrotic syndrome secondary to biopsy-proven isolated CMV glomerulopathy.
The patient developed CMV viremia with ganciclovir resistant UL97 mutation. His treatment course was resistant to recommended dose of intravenous ganciclovir, so therapy was changed to foscarnet with resolution of his viremia and reduction in proteinuria.
