Delayed graft function is unusual following live donor transplantation. Rejection is always a possibility of course, as are problems with the anastomosis, either at the vascular or ureteric levels. Transplant imaging as well a consideration of a renal biopsy would be important; it goes without saying that the usual differential diagnosis for postoperative AKI would apply as well.

Please update us as you learn more.
