Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The pathological findings on renal allograft biopsy specimens are often complex. By carefully defining the morphological features of acute allograft rejection, the Banff schema provides an important tool for the differential diagnosis of acute allograft dysfunction. This article reviews the criteria for diagnosis of rejection, and its differentiation from other inflammatory infiltrates in renal allograft biopsy specimens.
