Mixed cryoglobulinemia is well known to be associated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. We report two cases in which cryoglobulinemia appeared or became grossly exacerbated after orthotopic liver transplantation. In both cases, there was co-appearance of cryoglobulinemia with the reinfection of the grafted liver with HCV. It is postulated that the cryoglobulinemia might be related to secondary HCV infection in these patients.
