Renaltransplantation has become one of the most effective and mature methods for treatment of end-stage renal diseases. However, patients who have low immunity can easily have various complications such as rejection, infection, bleeding, and hypertension because of the high dose of immunosuppressive drugs. Pulmonary infection is the main complication after renaltransplantation and also the cause of death in patients who underwent renaltransplantation. In particular, severe pneumonia rapidly progresses and has high mortality. Within 1 year after renal

First renal transplantation in Montenegro was performed on September 25th, 2012. Since then, 32 transplantations have been performed. Only one was from deceased donor, the remaining were from living donors. 40.4% of all patients with end-stage renal disease currently live with the functioning renal allograft (190 patients on dialysis, 129 transplanted patients). There are 32 patients on the waiting list. Further efforts will be focused on development of the deceased donor program and introduction of the AB0 incompatible renal transplantations.

Hyperoxaluria type I (HPI) is a metabolic disorder secondary to liver alanine glyoxylate aminotransferase deficiency. Renal failure occurs due to the excessive production and precipitation of oxalate in the kidney. Combined liver-renal transplantation is the correct treatment for this condition when end-stage renal failure occurs since in renal transplantation alone the risk of recurrence of the same pathology in the transplanted kidney would be high.
We determined the calcification surrounding the double J stent inserted to the transplant ureter in a short time in a 22-year-old patient who underwent sequential liver and renal transplantation with the diagnoses of oxalosis. In the literature we have not found papers on calcification of double J stent following combined or sequential transplantation. Although after the sequential transplantation the calcification, nephrocalcinosis, and renal stones were practically not of great concern, these patients should be followed up more carefully in terms of stent calcification during the early post-transplant period.

Ellis van Creveld syndrome (EVC) is a rare chrondro-ectodermal dysplasia. Renal abnormalities are found in few EVC cases with agenesis, dysplasia, megaureter and nephrocalcinosis. Rarely EVC syndrome is complicated with kidney failure and only one child required renal transplantation.
We report a patient who was diagnosed with EVC syndrome at birth. He developed hypertension at age 15 and gradually progressed to chronic kidney disease stage 5 requiring hemodialysis and renal transplantation.
