Membranous nephropathy (MN) may occur in the transplanted kidney, either as recurrent disease in patients who had MN as the cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the native kidney or de novo, in patients who had another cause of ESRD initially. The reported incidence of recurrent MN ranges between 10% and 45%. Clinical manifestations of recurrent MN are typically observed 13-15 months after transplantation, although they may be observed much earlier (within weeks). Our patient had a recurrence in three weeks. Recurrent disease can lead to loss of the allograft.
