Abstract:

After the submission of this paper for publication our patient has died. She was readmitted ten days after discharge because of severe upper abdominal pain, vomiting and signs of general shock. The diagnosis of acute pancreatitis was established and the patient was treated conservatively. During the course of the disease a pancreatic abscess formed with the signs of general sepsis. On the 25th July (six months after transplantation) the patient died of massive gastrointestinal haemorrhage. The kidney function during this whole time was good. Autopsy revealed the grossly normal looking transplanted kidney, with minimal microscopical signs of rejection, hemorrhagic pancreatitis and four superficial erosions in the stomach. We have performed another kidney transplantation using a kidney from a dead body. The patient, a 40 years old man, received the kidney from a man who had died of massive cranial injury. The postoperative course was uncomplicated. The rejection process was recognized on three occasions and treated with Actinomycine C and high doses of prednisone. It is 157 days now since the transplantation and the kidney function is good. He returned to his normal work as a Police Officer
