Viruses such as human immunodeficiency virus, herpes simplex virus, cytomegalovirus, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and rabies can be transmitted to the recipient by corneal transplantation. Very few cases of rabies have been reported. Here we report two cases of rabies transmitted by the same donor. Both of the recipients died of rabies.
