The survival rate of kidney graft after kidney transplantation has been improved following the introduction of current immune suppression drugs. However, the risk of recurrence or de novo glomerulonephritis still remains. Most forms of the glomerular disease can recur after transplantation but different forms of glomerulonephritis have widely different allograft outcomes. Whereas IgA nephritis recurs in up to one-third of transplanted patients, this is not associated with adverse effects on graft survival. In contrast, recurrent focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) has an unfavorable prognosis and so early detection and appropriate treatment can be crucial. We are presenting here a patient with primary FSGS who developed acute kidney injury and heavy proteinuria in the first week post-transplant that responded completely to multiple plasmapheresis sessions and four doses of Rituximab...
