Abstract

Most kidneys used for cadaveric renal transplantation come from victims of fatal head injuries or cerebrovascular accidents. Patients who suffer other causes of irreversible brain death should also be considered as potential donors, even though they may at first appear unsuitable. We report a successful renal transplantation from a young man who died of cyanide poisoning.
