Calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) have been clearly associated with posttransplant thrombotic microangiopathy (PTTMA). We report a case of de novo PT-TMA involving predominantly small arteries and arterioles of a renal allograft in a patient receiving tacrolimus. Serial biopsies demonstrate the natural history of this lesion through the chronic nonspecific phase. The case is discussed in the context of a literature review of PT-TMA in general and CNI use in particular.
