Abstract

We read the publication on "Dengue virus transmission from live donor liver graft" with a great interest [1]. Mathew et al. reported a dengue patient and noted that "Screening of living donors for dengue virus may be considered in endemic regions [1]." It is questionable whether this is a true case of dengue transmitted by transplantation. First, the donor should have viremia or fever before the transplantation that can allow the possible transmission to the recipient.
