Early allograft calcifications after kidney transplantation (KT) have already been reported, but the clinical implications of this finding are not clear, so far. Patient-related factors, such as age, gender, underlying renal disease, as well as dialytic modality, seem to not be relevant. It has been postulated that factors promoting the development of metastatic calcifications, including elevated calcium-phosphate product and severe secondary hyperparathyroidism, could play a causal role. Here we report a case of a KT patient, who presented early kidney calcifications, rapidly developed and associated to severe allograft dysfunction.
