Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Both primary and secondary glomerular diseases that cause end-stage kidney disease in native kidneys can recur in allografts of kidney transplant recipients. Several of these recurrent glomerular diseases can lead to significant allograft failure and loss. De novo glomerular diseases can also develop in the kidney allograft. In this chapter, we review the incidence, risk factors, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, and prognosis of several of these primary and secondary recurrent and de novo glomerular diseases that affect the allograft. Management of these allograft diseases is also briefly reviewed.
