One of the most serious side effects of this drug is nephrotoxicity; although the first descriptions mainly focused on chronic nephropathy, a reversible acute renal effect has been reported (2). However, the frequent presence in transplant recipients of other renal injuries makes recognition of these episodes of acute renal failure difficult.
A 40-year-old man received cyclosporine because of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis with nephrotic syndrome resistant to steroid treatment. He had been given furosemide
