Abstract

Posttransplant renal cell carcinoma (RCC) usually arises in the native kidneys of renal transplant recipients rather than in the transplanted kidney. This report describes a case of RCC that developed in the transplanted cadaveric kidney in a 37-year-old male recipient 9 months after transplantation. An en bloc radical transplant nephrectomy was performed, and he has subsequently remained stable on hemodialysis for 3 years without any sign of recurrence.

Key words Renal transplantation Cadaveric donor Renal cell carcinoma
