Late Recurrence of Systemic Vasculitis after Kidney Transplantation Involving the Kidney Allograft
A patient is described in whom a recurrence of vasculitis was observed in the kidney allograft six years after transplantation and one year after withdrawal of corticosteroid therapy. This case shows that systemic vasculitis may recur at any time after transplantation which implies a continuous and careful monitoring of these patients.
