Abstract
Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for children with end-stage renal disease. The outcome of pediatric kidney transplantation has improved dramatically in recent years, with lower acute rejection rates, superior graft survival, and low mortality. These improvements have allowed increased attention to other aspects of care for long-term survivors. Taking this into consideration, this review article will focus on the key issues related to pediatric kidney transplantation such as growth, neurocognitive function, nonadherence, and posttransplantation infectious complications, including lymphoproliferative disease, to broaden the understanding of pediatricians who provide pre-and postoperative care to children with end-stage renal disease.
Key Words: Children, Renal transplantation
