Abstract

Fungal arteritis of the Y graft used to revascularize the whole pancreas graft developed in 2 recipients of simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant that were performed within 36 hr of each other. The vascular infection became manifest 6-7 days following transplantation. In both patients, the vasculitis culminated in an arterial rupture that required immediate operative intervention. This compromise of the Y grafts contributed to loss of both pancreatic grafts and necessitated vascular reconstruction to reperfuse the lower extremity. To date, both patients continue to experience normal kidney transplant function.
