Ultrasound- guided percutaneous allograft renal biopsy is commonly done to evaluate graft dysfunction. Complications of renal biopsy are usually minor, and major complications occur only in less than 1% cases. We report a case of allograft renal biopsy which caused a subcapsular hematoma, Page kidney and deterioration of graft function. This was diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) scan, and early surgical intervention led to complete recovery.
