    Analysis of 25 Consecutive Transplants in 19 Recipients


    Eighteen children aged 6 to 17 years received 24 cadaveric renal transplants between January 1965 and July 1971, and a further child received a kidney donated by her father. 12 children are alive with good functioning grafts and another 2 children are alive on haemodialysis awaiting a further renal graft. The clinical problems of renal transplantation in children are discussed with particular reference to the side effects of immunosuppressive therapy.
