Renal allograft rupture (RAR) is a rare but lethal complication of renal transplantation. This can be a threat to the graft and patient survival. Over the decades, allograft nephrectomy has been the standard treatment for renal allograft rupture. But now, recent evidences suggest that graft salvage treatment can be safely done in complicated cases also. We describe a case of 30-year-old male who received a living donor kidney transplant and had spontaneous graft rupture in early post transplant period due to acute rejection. Graft was successfully repaired surgically, along with medical management and now the graft is functioning well.
