Abstract

A 33-year-old cadaveric renal transplant recipient showed complete histologic resolution of hemosiderosis by liver biopsies obtained pre- and post-transplantation. Although there have been reports in the past of progression of hemosiderosis to hemochromatosis to severe liver failure in the renal transplant population, the correlation has never been clear. This is the first case report of complete resolution of hemosiderosis as documented histologically by liver biopsies in a cadaveric renal transplant recipient.
