In renal transplantation, preformed cytotoxic antibody against donor HLA class I antigens causes hyperacute rejection of renal allografts, but its pathogenic significance when it develops in the posttransplant period is unknown. In the present studies we describe the clinical and pathologic features of patients with rejection associated with anti-class I.(More)
Although the ability of preformed anti-class I antibodies to mediate hyperacute rejection is well established, their pathogenic role in acute rejection remains ill-defined. We set out to identify patients with anti-class I against donor cells and to define the clinical and pathological features of such patients. We collected sera pretransplant and in the(More)
A hemodialysis patient was diagnosed with pulmonary embolism, shortly after successful thrombectomy of an autogenous arteriovenous fistula. Diagnostic testing revealed no alternative source for thromboembolism. Increased recognition of hypercoagulability as a common consequence of end-stage renal disease would suggest that dialysis patients would be at risk(More)
Methanol toxicity can cause severe central nervous system insult in which a characteristic pattern of bilateral putaminal injury is noted on brain imaging studies. We present a fatal case of subacute methanol toxicity with associated diffuse brain involvement, including bilateral putaminal necrosis and cerebral edema with ventricular compression.(More)
A 43-year-old patient of occult adult T-cell lymphoma (ATL) presenting with systemic illness and progressive renal failure due to lymphomatous infiltration of kidneys is described. The striking feature observed was destructive infiltration of the kidneys, by malignant CD4 cells, virtually replacing the normal renal architecture. The diagnosis of lymphoma(More)
