TPIS Presentation Case
Selected Links
Our current case is contributed by Dr. Jennifer Picarsic from the Department of Pathology, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

This 18 year old male renal transplant patient was admitted with fever, elevated creatinine and allograft tenderness. Donor specific antibodies were identified and there was a suspicion of rejection. Urine culture was negative for infection and DMSA scan for chronic pyelonephritis was negative (no cortical scars) on this admission. The Infectious Diseases team was suspecting a "viral pyelonephritis"; BK virus immunohistochemistry was negative.
