Percutaneous aspiration of renal allografts was done employing ultrasound localization and the Jamshidi renal biopsy needle-syringe. Adequate tissue for pathologic assessment was obtained in 19 of 20 biopsy attempts. There were no complications. Ultrasound provides a convenient, nonradiologic means of renal localization for allograft biopsy. The aspiration needle-syringe is well suited for percutaneous transplant biopsy.
