Recurrent AA amyloidosis in a kidney transplant

, : Recurrent AA amyloidosis in a kidney transplant. American Journal of Kidney Diseases 57(6): 941-944

Recurrent AA amyloidosis in a kidney transplant is rare, especially when the underlying inflammatory condition is controlled. We present a 59-year-old man who underwent a living donor kidney transplant 17 years ago for kidney failure due to AA amyloid nephropathy in the setting of long-standing Crohn disease. His Crohn disease was quiescent before and after the kidney transplant. Transplant function had been stable until a month before presentation, when he developed worsening proteinuria and decreased kidney function. A transplant biopsy showed recurrent AA amyloidosis despite excellent clinical and histologic control of Crohn disease.
