Accurate data for recurrence rates are difficult to obtain, especially because transplantation biopsies often are not performed routinely after transplantation without a specific indication. Thus, some recurrence rates may be overrepresented in failing grafts, with asymptomatic recurrence being undetected. Many recurrent diseases do not cause urinary abnormalities or symptoms. Diseases that are slowly progressive also may be under-represented in studies with only a short follow-up time (eg, immunoglobulin A disease).
