A Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection after a liver transplantation is a known complication; however, positive serology in the donor liver confers an increased risk of CMV infection in the recipient, in addition to further complications, bacterial infections, and even transplant rejection. This case report discusses a 56-year-old male who presents with one month of diarrhea, approximately three months after a CMV-positive donor liver transplantation. For unclear reasons, he was not started on antiretroviral prophylaxis after transplantation. This report will review diagnostic tests for CMV, treatment recommendations, and suggestions for anti-retroviral prophylaxis after liver transplantation.
