The authors present the first case of successful twin pregnancy, following renal transplantation in Hungary. As a result of chronic pyelonephritis ending in bilateral renal failure, a 33 year old female patient, underwent kidney transplantation in 1995. Following this she has had 3 unsuccessful pregnancies, two missed abortions and one spontaneous abortion. During this present, spontaneosly conceived twin pregnancy several complications were encountered (threatened abortion, severe anemia, diabetes, preeclampsia). Due to progressive deterioration of the renal function, presence of preeclampsia and retarded fetal growth a cesarean section was performed on the 34th gestational week and two male newborns weighing 1740 g and 1480 g were delivered. The case report points out that twin pregnancy is not an absolute contraindication after renal transplantation, however a strict patient monitoring and close collaboration between the obstetricians, the transplantation team and the nephrologists is mandatory.
