Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is a rare serious adverse reaction of calcineurin inhibitors, tacrolimus and cyclosporin. We report a case of a young male renal transplant recipient treated with tacrolimus, who developed TMA. Treatment included discontinuation of tacrolimus, increasing the dose of mycophenolate mofetil and infusion of fresh-frozen plasma. This was followed by normalization of renal function and dis­appearance of proteinuria. The remission has been sustained after a follow-up of nine months.
