  • CT findings in tell patients with failed renal allografts: comparison with findings in functional grafts EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF RADIOLOGY Gayer, G., Apter, S., Katz, R., Ben-David, A., Katzir, Z., Hertz, M. 2000; 36 (3): 133-138


    Our aim is to report the computed tomography (CT) features of the long-term failed renal allograft. Ten patients with failed renal transplants in whom the graft was left in situ underwent CT for various unrelated indications. The majority of the failed grafts showed marked shrinkage and coarse punctate diffuse parenchymal calcifications. Small cysts were seen in four grafts. A long-term failed renal transplant appeared on CT as a small rounded soft tissue mass. The graft was almost always heavily calcified. Lack of awareness of the nature of such a mass may mislead the radiologist in interpreting it as a space-occupying lesion.
