Am J Kidney Dis. 1998 Oct;32(4):661-3. doi: 10.1016/s0272-6386(98)70033-2.

Abstract

A 30-year-old woman with a living related six-antigen-matched kidney allograft conceived 10 years posttransplantation. She had discontinued her immunosuppression medications 3 years previously. The allograft functioned well throughout gestation, which was complicated by preeclampsia, leading to induction at 35 weeks and delivery of a 2,175-g male.
