Abstract

We present the case of a patient with past medical history of acute mieloblastic leukemia treated with a related, fully match alogenic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). He presented after BMT treatment graft versus host disease (GVHD) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. He also developed end-stage renal disease that required renal replacement therapy. A preemptive kidney transplant was performed. The haematopoiesis were in complete chimera and the patient developed tolerance to the kidney graft, requiring only minimal immunossupression because of his GVHD.
