Marium Naveed Khan, William F Walsh
A monochorionic-diamniotic twin baby presented with intrauterine growth restriction and anuria. The baby was found to have bladder agenesis, a pelvic dysplastic horseshoe kidney, vertebral anomalies, a ventricular septal defect and facial dysmorphisms. It was surprising to find no abnormalities in amniotic fluid indices prenatally, suggesting the possibility of urine output that declined as the pregnancy proceeded. Some degree of twin-to-twin transfusion of amniotic fluid was also possible, which could have rescued the oligohydramnios known to be associated with kidney and urinary tract abnormalities...

A 16-year-old white man was involved in a motor vehicle collision and suffered head, chest, and abdominal trauma. Despite initial resuscitative efforts, he progressed to brain death and was designated to be an organ donor by his family. He had no earlier medical or surgical history and no high-risk behaviors. Blood work revealed normal creatinine, liver function tests, lipase, and amylase. Viral serologies were negative except for cytomegalovirus IgG and Epstein-Barr virus nucleic acid. Imaging revealed a right kidney contusion, a manubrial fracture, and fractures of right first rib and bilateral scapulae...

BACKGROUND: Combined kidney and auxiliary orthotopic liver transplantation from the same donor is used to treat highly sensitized renal transplant recipients. Auxiliary liver can protect the transplanted kidney against hyperacute rejection. METHODS: In the current case, combined kidney and splenic fossa auxiliary heterotopic liver transplantation was performed from the same donor for a highly sensitized recipient without preoperative preconditioning. No postoperative hyperacute rejection occurred...

BACKGROUND: Spindle cell lipoma is an uncommon variant of lipoma and usually occurs as a solitary, subcutaneous, and well circumscribed lesion in the posterior neck, shoulders, and back of older men. Primary renal lipomas are rarely reported. Spindle cell lipoma in the kidney has not been previously described in the literature. CASE REPORT: A 60-year-old Chinese man suffered graft failure 10 years after living related donor kidney transplantation. During cancer surveillance, he was found to have a mass in the renal allograft, which increased in size and was suspicious for renal cell carcinoma on computerized tomographic scan...

Tacrolimus is a widely used macrolide immunosuppressant in transplant surgery, with mild and major neurologic side effects. A 21-year-old woman had undergone preemptive transplantation of a kidney from her mother. On the 1st postoperative day, the patient had headache, nausea, vomiting, and agitation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain showed hyperintensity and a lesion in the right mesial temporal lobe. After we switched from tacrolimus to cyclosporine, the symptoms regressed. Persistence of the lesion, confirmed by repeated MRI, required that the patient be operated on...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this work was to report our experience in robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for the treatment of localized prostate cancer in a kidney transplant recipient. METHODS: A 73-year-old man with chronic renal failure underwent living-donor kidney transplantation (KT) in 1993. His baseline creatinine after KT was ∼1.2 mg/dL. He developed lower urinary tract symptoms in 1999. He was diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia and treated accordingly...

The most common testicular tumor is seminoma, but it is one of the rarest malignancies in kidney transplant recipients, with only 15 cases published in the English-language literature. Except in 1 case of recurrence, all cases were de novo malignancies after transplantation. We bring a case of a patient treated for testicle teratoma at age 24 years who received a kidney transplant at age 40 years, and 19 months after transplantation was diagnosed with a metastatic seminoma. To the best of our knowledge, there are no data of germ cell tumor late recurrence after kidney transplantation...

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is an often fatal hyperinflammatory syndrome that may complicate malignancy, infection, rheumatic disease, or immunosuppression. HLH after kidney transplantation is most often triggered by infection, usually Herpes viruses such as cytomegalovirus and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It usually occurs early after transplantation. We present a case of HLH triggered by reactivation of EBV that pursued a rapidly fatal course within 6 days of receiving a deceased-donor kidney transplant...

Renal transplant recipients infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) have a high risk of progressing to cirrhosis, end-stage liver diseases, and hepatocellular carcinoma. It is also considered as an independent risk for graft loss and is correlated with proteinuria, transplant glomerulopathy, HCV-associated glomerulonephritis, and chronic rejection. Previous therapy involving interferon alfa and ribavirin led to treatment complications, including toxicity, anemia, sepsis, and drug-drug interactions with calcineurin inhibitors, as well as reduced tolerability and efficacy...

BACKGROUND: Nocardia is a genus of gram-positive Actinomycetes that are ubiquitous in decaying organic material, soil, and water. Some Nocardia species can infect humans, mainly by airborne transmission. Several reports describe disseminated infections, which are rare and mostly affect strongly immunocompromised patients because intact T-cell-mediated immunity is the major protective mechanism. CASE REPORT: We report a case of disseminated pulmonary, cerebral, and cutaneous infection with Nocardia farcinica in a 66-year-old kidney transplant recipient treated with low-dose triple immunosuppression...

BACKGROUND: Infections, particularly urinary tract infections, and cardiovascular accidents are the main causes of morbidity and mortality during the 1st year after kidney transplantation (KT). Bacteria and viruses, such as Escherichia coli, Enteroccoci, and Polyoma BK virus are common in the 1st 6 months, so they are controlled routinely. On the other hand, Clostridium perfringens infection is a rare life-threatening condition, associated with a high mortality rate especially in the transplant population, that is not controlled routinely...

Although donor-specific antibodies are regarded as a contraindication for kidney transplantation, the data available for combined liver and kidney transplantation (cLKTx) are scarce, and there is no established therapeutic approach for this category of transplant recipients. De novo use of everolimus and a reduced dose of calcineurin inhibitor reportedly provides excellent kidney function compared with a standard regimen containing a calcineurin inhibitor. This strategy, however, has been applied in only some recipient categories...

Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) after kidney transplantation is an uncommon and challenging cause of graft dysfunction and is associated with early graft loss. An idiosyncratic endothelial reaction to calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) has been implicated as a frequent cause of TMA. This reaction is marked by uncontrolled activation of complement and subsequent cellular destruction. Usual therapy consists of withdrawal of the inciting drug and plasmapheresis to minimize levels of circulating complement. Recently, eculizumab, a monoclonal antibody to complement component C5, has been used for the treatment of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome...

Severe antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) of a blood type-incompatible (ABOi) living donor kidney transplantation (LDKT) can lead to graft failure, and aggressive therapies, such as the anticomplement antibody eculizumab, are often used to rescue the affected graft. Eculizumab therapy can be crippling financially. Current literature suggests a wide variation in the amount and timing of eculizumab given as rescue therapy in the setting of AMR. Herein we describe a limited-eculizumab regimen in the setting of severe AMR that is both clinically and cost effective...

BACKGROUND: Allograft renal vein thrombosis is a rare complication of kidney transplantation. Most cases occur in the first 2 weeks after transplantation, but there are cases described many years after the transplant surgery. Allograft loss is the usual outcome. METHODS: We present a case of a renal transplant recipient with allograft renal vein thrombosis associated with deep venous thrombosis of a lower limb, 9 years after transplantation. He was successfully treated with anticoagulation alone, with recovery of allograft function...

Primary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) recurs in 30% of patients receiving their first kidney transplant and often leads to graft loss. In the past, patients with FSGS and overt nephrotic syndrome rarely underwent transplantation. Rituximab (RTX), an anti-CD20-specific monoclonal antibody, was previously reported to be a valuable option in treating relapsing FSGS after kidney transplantation. We report here the first successful kidney transplantation in a young patient with primary FSGS and massive nephrotic syndrome treated with RTX induction...

There have been few reports on allogeneic stem cell transplantation in patients who have previously undergone solid organ transplantation. The clinical course of such patients is not yet well recognized. Therefore, appropriate immunosuppressive prophylaxis for the rejection of a solid organ graft or for graft-versus-host disease has not yet been established. We present the case of a successful allogeneic stem cell transplantation in a patient who relapsed after a first allogeneic stem cell transplantation for myelodysplastic syndrome and who had previously undergone renal transplantation...

BACKGROUND: In kidney transplantation, long-term graft survival has improved over the last few decades. Study to understand ultralong-term graft survival with graft functioning is rare, but a few researchers have tried to explain the factors involved in long-term graft survival. In this report, we explore the predictive factors that can be involved in ultralong-term graft survival. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Immunologic evaluations of the patients were performed using crossmatch (XM), serological, and high-resolution HLA typing for 8 loci...

BACKGROUND: Many surgical procedures can produce persistent lymphorrhea, lymphoceles, and lymphedema after lymph node and lymph vessel damage. Appropriate visualization of the lymphatic system is challenging. Indocyanine green (ICG) is a well-known nontoxic dye for lymphatic flow evaluation. ICG fluorescence-guided lymphography has emerged as a promising technique for intraoperative lymphatic mapping. OBJECTIVE: Our goal was to develop a high spatial resolution, real-time intraoperative imaging technique to avoid or recognize early deep lymphatic vessel damage...

OBJECTIVE: We aim to describe management of a patient receiving renal transplantation for chronic renal failure due to Alport syndrome with low dose of intrathecal bupivacaine and continuous epidural infusion of local anesthetic. CASE REPORT: A 38-years-old man with chronic renal failure secondary to Alport syndrome underwent kidney transplantation. Because of a high risk of respiratory and cardiovascular complications related to the patient's baseline lung disease and abnormalities in heart conduction, we selected combined spinal-epidural anesthesia...
