Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 50-year-old male kidney transplant recipient who went to the hospital after suffering anuria and back pain on the same side as the graft. The article discusses ruptures of kidney grafts which are uncommon but poses severe complications of kidney transplants. It leads to loss of the graft and death. It mentions that prior to calcineurin inhibitors, this complication was common and is mainly caused by acute rejection.
