Description

Renal transplantation is an established cost-effective treatment in patients with end-stage renal disease [1]. However, after the first year, graft survival curves show an exponential decline in numbers of functioning grafts. Many causes of renal graft dysfunction are treatable, thus making prompt detection and diagnosis of complications mandatory. Acute tubular necrosis (ATN) may cause immediate oliguria and may follow an initial short period of graft function as well as acute rejection. Finally, there is a possibility of cyclosporine or tacrolimus toxicity.
