Abstract

We report a 15-year-old girl who developed a ureteral perforation soon after living-related donor renal transplantation. Her presentation was unusual in that a symptomatic pleural effusion accumulated as an extension of the perinephric urine collection. Recognition and surgical correction of the ureteral pathology led to resolution of respiratory symptomatology and full recovery of renal function.
