Abstract

The Page kidney phenomenon is a well recognized entity where an extrinsically compressed kidney results in hypertension and loss of function. This compression is usually caused by a subcapsular hematoma secondary to blunt abdominal trauma or an invasive procedure such as a renal biopsy. We describe an unusual case involving the spontaneous development of a Page kidney 24 days after renal transplantation without any history of preceding trauma. The subcapsular hematoma was detected by a computerized tomographic scan performed as part of the work-up for acute allograft dysfunction. Prompt recognition and early intervention are essential if renal function is to be restored before irreversible damage occurs.
