    Abstract: Background: Kidney transplantation is the preferred renal replacement therapy for patients with end-stage renal disease, but the waiting list for kidneys continues to grow because of a shortage of donor organs. The reuse of transplanted kidneys would seem to be a good approach to expand the pool of available organs. Here, we describe the reuse of a kidney 9 years after the initial transplantation. At 4-year follow-up, the second recipient is showing good renal function. Case presentation: In 2005, a kidney was transplanted from a 40-year-old man, who suffered brain death due to an intracranial hemorrhage, into a 45-year-old man. Nine years later, the recipient suffered a ruptured cerebral aneurysm, resulting in brain death. The kidney was re-transplanted into a 40-year-old man with diabetic nephropathy who had received hemodialysis for 5 years. During 4 years of follow-up, the graft has functioned well. Conclusions: This case demonstrates the successful regrafting of a transplanted kidney. We believe this is the longest period for reuse of kidney after initial transplantation. The outcome suggests that a well-functioning transplanted kidney can be reused years after transplantation.
