We report our experience in applying the Charles procedure to a female renal allograft recipient for her left lower leg lymphedema. This is a rare comorbidity in limb lymphedema victims, and the use of the Charles procedure has not been reported in such an immunocompromised patient. After surgery, infection was well controlled, and there was minimal scar in the affected limb.
