Can someone receive a kidney transplant that has gential herpes?

Yes but... There is no cure for herpes. The virus lives in your nervous system, waiting for an opportune time to cause mischief. Because transplant patients are immune-suppressed, they would need life-long herpes treatments to prevent severe outbreaks and other problems related to herpes.
