After a general review of the US findings in acute renal allograft rejection, the results are discussed of a retrospective sonographic-histologic study in 17 patients affected by acute rejection. The high sensitivity of sonography in detecting acute rejection is confirmed, but echographic studies were unable to differentiate between vascular and cellular sub-types of rejection and to provide a prognostic evaluation.
