Cadaveric donors with congenital renal anomalies are often refused because of technical difficulties. As the waiting periods for kidney transplants continue to increase, transplant centers need to consider them also as potential donors. This paper describes transplantation of a crossed fused disc type ectopic kidney to two patients with end-stage renal disease, after parenchymal transection. The transplants were successful with minimal complications, and the recipients had immediate graft function. It is now one year from transplantation, with excellent renal functions.
