Kidney transplantation is considered the best choice for patients with end stage renal disease. However, recurrence of primary disease, especially glomerular disease represents a major problem. Nodular glomerulosclerosis with its wide differential diagnosis can recur post kidney transplantation and might results in graft failure. Here, we report a unique case of 35 years old male with idiopathic nodular glomerulosclerosis that recurred twice after two successful living donor kidney transplants.
