BACKGROUND: To present a successful case of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and single embryo transfer (SET) in a kidney transplant (NTX) patient and review of the literature.
METHODS: Case report and review of the literature.
SETTING: IVF-Unit in a university medical center.
PATIENT(S): A 31 year-old nulliparous woman with primary infertility and a history of two kidney transplants.
INTERVENTION(S): IVF-SET MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Live birth, renal transplant function.
RESULTS(S): IVF-SET resulted in a pregnancy with labor induction and cesarean delivery in the 37th week of gestation due to rising serum creatinine. There was no significant maternal or fetal morbidity.
CONCLUSION(S): Successful IVF-SET is possible in NTX patients. To date, including this case, five cases of IVF in NTX patients have been reported in the literature without an apparently increased renal morbidity.
