A 51-year-old woman with a 20-year history of renal transplantation during the end-stage ofchronic renal failure caused by tubulointerstitial nephritis. She died of chronic graft rejection.An interstitial calcification limited to 1. and 2. left segments was encountered as an incidentalautoptic finding. There were two unusual microscopic findings, i.e., no involvement of arteriolesand larger vessel inclusive veins, and a foreign-body response to some of the calcified tissue.

Key words:
pulmonary calcification - renal transplantation - chronic rejection
