The major long-term complications of renal transplantation (RT) include cardio赳ascular disease, opportunistic infections, malignancies, and chronic allograft nephropathy. Long負erm complications are generally considered as those occurring more than 1 year post trans計lantation; however, some of the complications can occur earlier. We present a 58-year-old man who presented with multiple complications of RT concurrently and relatively early post trans計lantation including Kaposi's sarcoma, tuberculosis and allograft dysfunction.
