Abstract

This report describes the successful treatment in a transplant recipient of a case of MK originating from the native urinary tract. As demonstrated, MK may pursue unexpected patterns to which conventional therapeutic guidelines may not be applicable. The type of surgical intervention used must be dictated by the extent and location of the disease and its complications. Withdrawal of immunosuppressive medication was useful in improving the patient's prognosis.
