Abstract

This case report presents spontaneous resolution of acute rejection in a 66-year-old man who underwent a kidney transplant and developed acute rejection and pneumonia. Our main concern in this case was how to treat the concurrent infection while maintaining the immunosuppressive therapy with a narrow available therapeutic range, in order to save the renal allograft without increasing antirejection therapy.
