Hemodialysis and renal transplantation were done in a patient with progressive systemic sclerosis and renal failure. The patient's clinical course following transplantation was uncomplicated, and a biopsy of the renal allograft done 14 mth after transplantation did not show recurrence of the original disease. These observations favor the consideration of early renal transplantation in patients with scleroderma and renal failure.
