We report a case of invasive cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in the native ureter of a patient 7 years after liver-kidney transplantation. Previous reports of CMV ureteritis in transplant patients have involved only the allograft ureter, usually within 3 months of transplantation. The common characteristics of these patients, the possible risk factors, and the diagnostic findings of CMV ureteritis are discussed. Combined surgical and medical intervention are required for successful treatment.
