Abstract

Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant from living donors has been recently proposed as an effective therapeutic option in selected uremic patients with type I diabetes. We report the first simultaneous pancreas- kidney transplant performed between identical twins. Posttransplant, the recipient has been maintained on low dose cyclosporine to avoid recurrent auto-immune insulitis. At the 1-year follow-up, both donor and recipient are well with normal renal function and excellent glucose control. Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant between identical twins can be performed successfully using cyclosporine to prevent recurrent auto-immune insulitis.
