The Banff schema of classification of renal allograft biopsies, first proposed at the meeting in Banff, Canada in 1991 has evolved through subsequent meetings held once in two years and is the internationally accepted scheme of classification which is consensual, current, validated and in clinical use. This review traces the evolution of the classification and our understanding of renal transplant pathology, with emphasis on alloimmune reactions. The proceedings of the meetings and the important studies which have shaped the classification are covered.
