Resumen

VEGA, Jorge; GOECKE, Helmuth; VALENZUELA, Hugo  y  SANTAMARINA, Mario. Metastatic pulmonary calcification in a patient with a functioning kidney allograft: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.12, pp.1584-1588. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872013001200014.

In renal transplants patients, metastatic pulmonary calcifications have been reported occasionally when the grafts are dysfunctional and rarely when they are functioning normally. We report a male who received a renal allograft in 1994 at the age of 61 years. Nineteen years later a routine chest X ray showed diffuse infiltrates and a CT scan showed diffuse calcifications in both lungs. These were interpreted as metastatic pulmonary calcifications. The last available laboratory determinations were a serum creatinine of 1.4 mg/dl and urinary protein excretion of 255 mg/24 hours. No further studies were done since the patient experienced a sudden death due to an acute myocardial infarction.

Palabras clave : Kidney transplantation; Pulmonary calcification; Renal insufficiency.
