A 27-year-old man underwent a deceased kidney transplant. Three days after transplantation, COVID-19 was diagnosed for our patient. Immunosuppressants were reduced and a renal biopsy was conducted, which showed acute T cell-mediated rejection. We intened to share a case to help clinicians to understand the risks that kidney transplant recipients face.
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
Our report of a COVID-19 infection in a renal transplant recipient with a successful outcome but differing clinical outcomes may act as a guidance for treating patients with this condition.
