The phospholipiase A2 receptor (PLA2R) has been identified as an important target in most cases of native membranous nephropathy. Distinguishing between post-transplant recurrent membranous nephropathy and de novo disease is important, In this paper, staining of renal transplant biopsies for PLA2R was found in cases with recurrent, but not de novo disease. This shows that […]

Bariatric surgery is an established treatment for obesity, but one recognized complication is hyperoxaluria due to the shortened small intestine. This article presents two cases of patients with a past history of bypass surgery who developed allograft dysfunction due to oxalate deposition in the graft. Early recognition, including monitoring of oxalate levels, may prevent graft […]
