Chronic kidney disease − mineral bone disorder is a common complication in patients with renal failure. Vascular calcification is the part of this clinical syndrome and progresses over the years. A successful renal transplantation ameliorates the uremic milieu and retards the progression of vascular calcification. In some cases, the vascular calcification is progressive even after transplantation leading to undesirable complications. We describe a case of renal allograft recipient who developed renal allograft dysfunction secondary to his progressive vascular disease. His extensive vessel calcification was missed in routine investigations. This case illustrates the need for dedicated evaluation of vascular calcification in high-risk patients undergoing renal transplantation.
