Abstract

Simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplantation has rarely been performed in the pediatric population. This report describes successful SPK transplantation in a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy with renal and pancreatic insufficiency secondary to postdiarrheal hemolytic-uremmic syndrome. All reported cases of pediatric SPK transplantation are reviewed. SPK transplantation is a feasible option in selected pediatric patients with combined pancreatic and renal insufficiency.
