BACKGROUND Plasma cell-rich acute rejection (PCAR) is a rare type of allograft rejection characterized by the presence of mature plasma cells. In general, the prognosis of PCAR is poor, and its clinical and pathological features remain unclear. METHODS We performed a retrospective observational study and compared allograft survival between kidney transplant recipients who developed PCAR and those who did not develop PCAR. We further analyzed clinical and pathological risk factors for… CONTINUE READING
