    Right Homonymous Hemianopsia and Seizures in a Liver Transplant Recipient

    Neuroimaging. (A) Axial noncontrast computer tomography demonstrating hypodensity in the left occipital lobe. Note that the lesion does not precisely follow the vascular distribution of the posterior cerebral artery. (B) Axial diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reveals hyperintensity in the left occipital lobe consistent with cytotoxic edema and recent infarct confirmed by corresponding hypointensity on the apparent diffusion coefficient map (C). (D) Axial T1-weighted, gadolinium enhanced MRI shows two confluent, rim-enhancing lesions abutting the occipital horn of the left lateral ventricle. There is associated midline shift and effacement of the ipsilateral hemispheric sulci.

    Renal Failure in a Kidney Transplant Recipient—BK Virus Nephropathy or Rejection?

    The hematoxylin and eosin stain of transplant kidney biopsy done 3 years posttransplantation reveals moderate interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy with inflammatory infiltration. Serum creatinine was 2.5mg/dL and serum BK virus PCR was undetectable at <5000 copies/mL on the day of biopsy.

    CT of the abdomen shows a collection in the porta hepatis/gallbladder fossa that represents a hematoma (labeled H). The reconstructed hepatic artery is redundant. The arrow represents an abnormality adjacent to the hepatic artery and the duodenum (labeled D).

    Light microscopy. Numerous tubular epithelial cells show accumulation of crystals in their cytoplasm, imparting a striated appearance. One of these is indicated by the arrow. A lymphocytic inflammatory infiltrate with tubulitis is also present. Periodic acid–Schiff stain. Original magnification: 400×.

Current Issue Highlights

This Month in AJT

Hypothermia has been a central component of preservation strategies since the beginning of organ transplantation, but while this has been necessary with existing preservation solutions, it is increasingly recognized that deep hypothermia has adverse consequences that likely impair organ reanimation. This month, Lowalekar et al show compelling large animal data suggesting that a new preservation approach facilitates ambient temperature storage of donor hearts with superior function relative to hypothermic storage.

The AJT Report

The use of intravenous immunoglobulin in highly sensitized candidates for transplant is often controversial. This month, we talk to experts on both sides of the issue and look at the challenges of shortages and the drug's high cost. Also this month, we examine a new study that shows transplant surgeons report high levels of burnout due to interpersonal factors within the workplace.
