Four renal isografts have been performed and all have had satisfactory function for 7 1/2 to 17 2/3 yr without prophylactic or therapeutic immunosuppression. Three of these patients originally had glomerulonephritis, and in 1 there was histologic evidence of recurrent disease, 7 1/2 yr after transplantation, without proteinuria and without change in renal function. Although this experience is small, it suggests that prophylactic immunosuppression is not appropriate for recipients of renal isografts.
