Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is rarity after renal transplantation. Immunosuppressive therapy forms the cornerstone for the treatment of IBD. Ideally, IBD should not occur in this immunosuppressive state. However, local activation and dysregulation in the mucosal immune system has been proposed after tacrolimus and mycophenolate after renal transplantation. Our case report describes a very early-onset IBD after renal transplant which is hardly reported in literature.
