While kidney donors were generally not expected to experience any serious late-onset health problems, it was observed that hypertension and chronic kidney disease (CKD) may develop over time. This situation can occur many years after the transplant. Here, the end-stage renal failure (ESRF) picture that developed 8 years after an individual donated a kidney to his wife is presented, to draw attention to the follow-up of donors.
