Abstract

Chronic viral hepatitis remains common in the hemodialysis (HD) and renal transplantation population although measures to limit spread of hepatitis infection in HD units have markedly reduced its prevalence. Our review focuses on the current management of hepatitis B and C infections in renal transplant candidates before and after renal transplantation.
