Abstract

Chronic renal failure after successful bone marrow transplantation (BMT) may diminish the quality of life and may also evolve to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring chronic dialysis. Individual reports suggest poor survival of such patients. We evaluated the survival with ESRD after BMT by the case-control method. We found that patients who develop ESRD after BMT have a significantly decreased survival as compared with non-BMT patients. This was true for both diabetic and nondiabetic ESRD (both p < 0.03). These data demonstrate the poor outcome of ESRD after BMT which emphasizes the need for a better understanding of chronic renal failure after BMT.
