We describe a case of polyradiculoneuropathy (PRN) following living donor kidney transplantation, without clinical evidence of preexisting infection. In this study plasma exchange treatment resulted 6 days later in improvement in extremity weakness and paresthesias in the upper and lower extremities. Total neurological recovery was obtained 3 months after the onset of symptoms.
