We undertook this observational study to assess the incidence of acute rejections (AR) in the first six months after transplantation at Al-Karama Hospital, Iraq. Sixty eight patients (49 males and 19 females) underwent renal transplantation in 2006 and were followed up weekly. Forty six received kidneys from related donors and 22 from unrelated donors. During the first six months after transplantation AR occurred in 16 patients (23%); 11 (23%) related and 5 (23%) unrelated donor transplantation. We conclude that the incidence of acute rejection was similar in related and unrelated donor transplantation and the general incidence was comparable to that reported from most centers.
