Abstract
Posttransplant renal cell carcinoma (RCC) usually arises in the native kidn eys of renal transplant recipients rather than in the transplanted kidney. This report describes a case of RCC that developed in the transplanted cada veric kidney in a 37-year-old male recipient 9 months after transplantation . An en bloc radical transplant nephrectomy was performed, and he has subse quently remained stable on hemodialysis for 3 years without any sign of rec urrence.
