Proteinuria is a condition where we can found abnormal amount of serum proteins in urine. Proteinuria is very common non-specific sign of the renal allograft Injury. Proteinuria also increases risk of cardiovascular events. Proteinuria is frequently seen immediately after transplantation. The reason can be the native kidney or the allograft, probably as a consequence of the ischemia-reperfusion injury. Proteinuria falls after successful kidney transplantation within few weeks. The residual or late proteinuria represents graft injury. Proteinuria represents graft injury. There are two main mechanisms which can cause proteinuria after kidney transplantation: an inadequate reabsorption of small proteins from proximal tubular cells and an increased passage of albumin or protein with higher molecular weight. The types and amounts of proteins appearing in the urine may indicate the specific transplant injury or pathologic condition.
