BK virus nephropathy (BKVN) is among the most important problems in renal transplant recipients. This report presented an assessment of treatment with a fluoroquinolone antibiotic, ciprofloxacin, for 6 months in a 21-year-old male patient who developed BKVN after transplantation. Ciprofloxacin treatment reduced the viral load and improved the clinical findings.
