Abstract

Post-transplantation bladder leak, a potentially serious complication, is traditionally managed by reexploration and closure, and may require percutaneous placement of a nephrostomy tube. We report intractable bladder leakage that persisted following reclosure in a patient who also had cyclosporine nephrotoxicity. The attendant oligoanuria obviated the need for nephrostomy drainage and allowed healing of the bladder leak. The patient subsequently recovered from cyclosporine injury and regained renal function.
