A syndrome of rapid-onset end-stage renal disease (SORO-ESRD) following acute kidney injury (AKI) in native kidneys was described recently. To what extent this syndrome of unanticipated and rapidly irreversible ESRD impacts renal allograft survival is unknown. Over 6 months, we managed two deceased donor renal transplant recipients (RTRs) with rapid acceleration of previously stable allograft chronic kidney disease to abruptly terminate in irreversible ESRD following AKI. These are the first reports of SORO-ESRD in RTRs. More research is needed to ascertain the contribution of SORO-ESRD to renal allograft loss.
