is often associated with severe complications. Except for acute
rejection, infections and toxicity of immunosuppressive treatment
are the most frequent problems observed after transplantation.
Infections with hepatic viruses (HBV, HDV, HCV, HGV) and cytomegalic
virus (CMV) are the main infectious complications after renal
transplantation. Cyclosporine toxicity is not unusual for a
patient with renal transplantation and is even more frequent
for patients with hepatic impairment due to viral infections.
The subjects of this report are two renal transplant recipients
with acute pancreatitis, severe hepatitis and acute renal failure
on graft, receving immunosuppressive therapy for maintaining
renal graft function.
