Abstract

The ability to give birth to a live child is one of the best success of kidney transplantation. While there are an increasing number of pregnancies reported in kidney transplant recipients treated with cyclosporine or tacrolimus, there is little evidence of pregnancy among kidney transplant recipients exposed to sirolimus or everolimus. We present the first successful delivery in an organ transplant recipient exposed to everolimus during the whole gestation. The absence of congenital anomalies in the child as well as the recipient’s successful renal outcome are promising, although pregnancy in renal transplant recipients exposed to everolimus should be considered at higher risk.
