Title

Renal Siderosis in Donor Allograft: Pathologic and Clinical Sequelae.

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Transplantation of a cadaver kidney with marked siderosis and its outcome has not been reported. Increasing use of marginal kidneys has become common practice to expand the donor pool to meet the growing demand and will lead to increased recognition of kidney disease in cadaver donors with an unknown effect on graft outcome. This is a case report of a recipient of a cadaver kidney with marked siderosis monitored by surveillance biopsies and evaluated by clinico-pathological correlation. The recipient continued to have transplant kidney function, and a surveillance biopsy shows the natural course of the pathologic resolution of renal siderosis.
