Abstract Clinical and laboratory outpatient monitoring is an important tool in the prevention and management of complications associated with kidney transplantation and immunosuppressive therapy. In the absence of standard protocols for outpatient surveillance of kidney transplant recipients, recommendations for frequency and type of monitoring are determined by the likelihood of problems that are unique to the individual transplant recipient and the particular posttransplantation period. In addition, it is imperative to maintain the transplant recipient's overall health by screening for conditions or diseases that can be linked to prior renal disease, immunosuppressive therapies, and general health maintenance.
