Aim/Objectives/Background Systemic Lupus Erythematosis (SLE) is a systemic autoimmune disease affects multiple organs with clinically heterogeneous outcomes. Lupus Nephritis (LN) is a common complication of systemic lupus erythematosus, and it occurs in 31–65% of SLE patients. kidney transplantation is the best long-term option for patients with End Stage renal Disease. The aim of this work is then to assess the patient and graft outcome for those who reached end stage renal disease and received kidney transplantation at urology and nephrology center, mansoura university. Subjects and Methods The material of this section include 23 kidney transplant recipients due to lupus nephritis. A 46 matched kidney transplant patients who were diagnosed as end stage renal disease due to other causes will serve as control group. Results and Conclusions Results of the study showed no difference in patient and graft outcome between kidney transplant recipients due to lupus nephritis and kidney transplant recipients due to other causes. The risk of recurrence of lupus nephritis in the graft is very low if compared with FSGS or MPGN. We concluded that kidney transplantation for lupus patients is safe and carries no risk for lower patient or graft survival. The risk of recurrence is much lower if compared with other glomerular diseases.
