The living related donor still represents the unique source for renal transplantation in Morocco. Since 1986, 127 living related potential donors have been evaluated and 100 patients have been transplanted at the Ibn Rochd UHC in Casablanca. We retrospectively studied the potential donors and determined their profile and the exclusion criteria. The mean age at the time of donation was 37 +/- 11 years (range 18-66 years) and 60% of donors were women. The predominant sources of donors were sisters, brothers and mothers of recipients in 34%, 31% and 24% respectively. Forty three percent of them were married, 20% housewives and 17% unemployed. In addition, 37% were illiterate, 45% school graduates, and 18% university graduates. Donors and recipients were incom­plete HLA match in 72.7%, identical in 19% and different in 8.3%. The cross matching test was negative in all cases. The mean plasma creatinine was 0.8 ± 0.1 mg/dL with mean creatinine clearance of 103.16 ± 18.18 mL/min.
