Abstract:  We describe a case of chronic mineralizing pulmonary elastosis in a seven-yr-old boy following DD renal transplantion for Wilms tumour. Fourteen months post-transplantion he developed respiratory symptoms with lung biopsy demonstrating chronic mineralizing pulmonary elastosis thought to be secondary to immunosuppression with MMF. Symptomatic resolution occurred following MMF cessation.
