Chronic Antibody Mediated Rejection, a Continuous and Complex Lesion
Introduction: With the advent of more potent immunosuppression, early outcomes after kidney transplantation have been excellent. However, the long-term survival of renal allograft remains a difficult and unanswered question as most of the renal transplants undergo failure within a decade.

The first biopsy was Conclusion:The presence of pathogenic antibodies against non-HLA molecules should always be considered, particularly in the absence of detectable DSA with histological evidence of humoral response.
