Patients who have been kidney transplanted have an increased risk of developing cancer. This case report presents a rarely described case in which a patient, who had received a kidney transplant from a deceased donor, was diagnosed with disseminated urothelial carcinoma originating from the allograft. After the removal of the allograft and the immunosuppressive treatment, there was regression in the cancer. Unfortunately, it was not a complete regression of the urothelial cancer and the patient died. This case indicates that there is a risk of getting cancer from the transplanted kidney from a deceased donor, but also that the immunosuppressive treatment can contribute to the development of this cancer.
