Autopsy findings in 68 fatal renal transplant recipients, collected from the annuals of pathological autopsy cases in Japan



Tokai Journal of Experimental and Clinical Medicine 13(1): 23-29



This report describes autopsy findings in 68 fatal renal transplant recipients, collected from the Annuals of Pathological Autopsy Cases in Japan, 1981-1985, published by the Japanese Pathological Society. Direct causes of death in renal transplant recipients were mainly infections, bleeding, rejection, and liver dysfunction. Infectious complications were present in fourty-one autopsy patients (60.3%). Bronchitis and pneumonia were the most frequent, followed by general infections and peritonitis. Fungal infections were present in twelve cases (17.6%). Bleeding was present in thirty-three autopsy patients (48.5%). Gastrointestinal bleeding was the most frequent, followed by general bleeding, and brain and/or subarachinoid bleeding. Liver diseases were present in twenty-eight autopsy patients (41.2%).
