Spontaneous allograft rupture (SAR) is very rare in the posttransplant period. It is a life-threatening complication that affects the survival of the graft. It is associated with high rates of graft loss. SAR is most commonly associated with immunological processes. Acute rejection is the most common cause of SAR. Here we report the case of a child who had SAR with life-threatening complications and his treatment and follow-up.
