HIV is no longer an absolute contraindication to solid organ transplantation. However, few reports have been published with regards to pancreas or simultaneous pancreas kidney transplantation in the HIV-positive recipient. We report, to our knowledge, the first simultaneous pancreas kidney transplantation (SPK) performed in an HIV-positive patient in the United Kingdom. We reflect on the article recently published by Miro et al in Transplantation Proceedings and highlight strategies used by our department to prevent drug interactions in these complex patients.
