Membranous nephropathy (MN), one of the most frequent causes of nephrotic syndrome in native kidneys, is also a common glomerular pathology in transplanted kidneys(Davison AM, Johnston PA. Allograft membranous nephropathy, Nephrol Dial Transplant, 1992; 7(Suppl. 1):114-118. Specific treatment modalities have not been described for this population. However, renal transplanted patients presented with MN could have spontaneous remission as those with idiopathic MN. Here, we report a kidney allograft recipient diagnosed with de novo MN in early phases of posttransplantation period having a clinical remission over months.
