Abstract: Background: There is little information in literature on renal allograft biopsy findings in renal allograft dysfunction in live related renal transplant recipients. Material and Methods:A retrospective review of 1210 renal allograft biopsies from 575 renal transplant patients was carried out over a period of seven years from June 1997 till December 2004. The demographic, clinical, laboratory and biopsy findings were collected and analyzed.Results: A total of 1210 graft biopsies were performed on 575 patients. … Show more

“…The causes of allograft dysfunction vary depending on the post-transplant duration, living vs. cadaveric source of organ, type of immunosuppression, underlying or primary disease, etc (Kazi & Mubarak, 2012). It is estimated that 30-50% of allografts develop dysfunction during the early period (John & Herzenberg, 2010).…”

“…These often require recourse to the invasive procedure of renal allograft biopsy, which is still the gold standard test for an accurate diagnosis and categorization of rejection, for example [3]. The safety and clinical utility of the biopsy has been proved beyond doubt in numerous clinical studies during the last few decades [5][6][7][8][9][10][11]. However, the pathological interpretation of the biopsies is a daunting task and fraught with interobserver variation.…”

“…O Tricrômico de Masson auxilia na identificação de fibrose intersticial e subintimal (Racusen et al, 1999). Diante de uma disfunção do enxerto observada clinicamente, alguns fatores podem indicar a realização de uma biópsia de rim transplantado, entre estes estão: retardo na função do enxerto, diminuição na função do enxerto abaixo do esperado para a situação particular do paciente, aumento abrupto da creatinina sérica, aumento progressivo dos níveis de creatinina, proteinúria >1,0g, alterações no sedimento urinário sem causa urológica justificada e até mesmo, mudanças no esquema imunossupressor (Mubarak et al, 2012).…”
