Antibody-mediated rejection: importance of lactate dehydrogenase and neutrophilia in early diagnosis.

Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl 2011 May;22(3):525-30

Department of Renal Transplant Surgery, Riyadh Military Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

We report the importance of elevated serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and neutrophilia (NT) in two renal transplant recipients who developed renal impairment in the early post-operative period. One of our recipients developed oliguria and increased serum creatinine with unexplained elevation of LDH and NT. The biopsy was C4d positive with platelet and fibrin thrombi in the glomerular capillaries and arterioles and interpreted as acute vasculitis or thrombotic form of antibody-mediated rejection (VAMR) with positive donor-specific antibodies (DSA). Despite intensive treatment, this graft was lost. When another patient developed a similar picture, prompt immunoadsorption was started without waiting for a confirmatory biopsy or DSA, and both were later reported as positive. Improvement in renal function was associated with decreasing levels of LDH and NT. Neither of these was elevated in cases of acute cellular rejection (ACR) or antibody mediated rejection (AMR) with isolated tubular injury (TAMR). It may therefore be reasonable to assume that LDH and NT are potential diagnostic and prognostic markers of VAMR.

Orthotopic liver transplantation in hepatocellular carcinoma: comparison of results in incidental and known hepatocellular carcinoma.

Int Surg 2006 Jul-Aug;91(4):185-7

Department of Surgery, Section of Transplantation, University of Kentucky Medical Center, Lexington, Kentucky 40536-0293, USA.

Liver transplantation (LTx) is known therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We undertook a retrospective chart review and analysis of our experience with 19 patients with HCC who had undergone LTx between June 1995 and January 2003. We compared the results of 12 patients with known HCC (group I) with that of 7 patients with incidental HCC (group II). We found that the incidence of multifocal disease, lymphatic involvement, and tumor-free survival was not significantly different between the two groups. One patient in group I died of tumor. Patient survival was better in group II (100%), with a median follow-up of 45 months, as 4 more patients in group I (with known HCC) died of reasons unrelated to tumors, with a median follow-up of 23 months. We conclude that LTx in patients with either incidental or known HCC results in excellent tumor-free survival.
