The discovery of direct-acting antiviral therapy has revolutionized the treatment of Hepatitis C infection. The treatment of choice in a case of end stage kidney disease with Hepatitis C infection is kidney transplant and with DAA based interferon free regimens one can treat post transplant as well. There is paucity of data regarding transplantation of kidneys from HCV-infected donors into HCV-negative recipients. We report a case of sequential liver and kidney transplantation in which a HCV-negative recipient received a kidney from a HCV-infected deceased donor.
