Acute Renal Failure (ARF) in the immediate post transplant period is most commonly due to acute tubular necrosis, acute cellular rejection and calcineurin inhibitor toxicity apart from usual prerenal and post renal causes. In this report, we discuss an interesting and unusual cause of ARF due to thrombotic micro angiopathy in the immediate post transplant setting.
