          Abstract

          Two cases of hemolytic and uremic syndrome in heart transplant recipients are reported. Among solid organ transplantations, this complication mainly occurred in renal transplantation and only 1 case was reported in heart transplantation in the literature. Cyclosporine was the only etiologic factor found. The renal outcome was severe with end-stage renal failure and no recovery of the renal function despite stopping cyclosporine, corticoids and plasma exchange.
