Recurrence of Diabetic Nephropathy in Renal Transplants
The first systematic studies of recurrent diabetic nephropathy in human renal transplants were carried out by the Minneapolis group [1, 2]. A light-microscopic study  showed that hyaline arteriolosclerosis had developed in all renal transplants of diabetic patients studied within 5 years after the transplantation. In several cases, it was shown that both the afferent and the efferent arterioles were affected, a condition considered more or less pathognomonic for diabetic nephropathy . One of the biopsies also showed typical nodular glomerulosclerosis that had developed within 4 1/2 years after the transplantation .
