Chronic Allograft Nephropathy: The Inevitable Outcome of Renal Transplantation?

  • S. M. Dodd
Part of the Current Topics in Pathology book series (CT PATHOLOGY, volume 92)


Many renal allografts now survive and function for decades, but long-term degenerative remodelling of the transplant (chronic allograft nephropathy), with inexorable decline in renal function, is one of the most important determinants of the ultimate outcome of renal transplantation [86].
