Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is reported to be capable of modifying endothelial surface with subsequent increased risk of thromboembolic complications. Nevertheless, there are only sparse reports on its role in the development of bleeding diathesis. Here we report two renal transplant recipients who manifested severe coagulation disorders associated with acute CMV infection. Antiviral therapy was followed by consistent correction of coagulation abnormalities.
