Abstract

We report a case of BK virus-induced tubulointerstitial nephritis in a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Primary BK virus infection was exacerbated by chemotherapy-induced immunodeficiency. Careful administration of chemotherapy and anti-viral therapy prevented further damage. This diagnosis should be considered in children who experience renal dysfunction during cancer treatment.
