Recurrence of immunoglobulin (Ig) A nephropathy following kidney transplantation has been described as occurring in 40% to 60% of cases. Although this type of recurrence was considered a benign condition for a long time, more recent data showed that recurrent transplant IgA nephropathy may be a significant contributor to graft loss. We present 2 cases of recurrent IgA nephropathy following kidney transplantation. In case 1, renal function remained stable with a creatinine level of 1.2 mg/dL at 5 months after diagnosis and 61 months after transplantation. In case 2, the patient lost his graft and returned to regular hemodialysis at 36 months after diagnosis and 125 months after kidney transplantation.
