    Abstract

    Surgical wound infection after a renal transplant procedure can lead to graft loss in the presence of host immunosuppression and graft exposure to the environment. Early cover of the wound with well-vascularized tissue will facilitate early wound healing and preservation of the graft. The pedicle anterolateral thigh perforator flap is a popular flap used for soft tissue reconstruction in the groin and perineum. We present a case of an anterolateral thigh flap used to cover an exposed transplanted kidney after surgical wound breakdown.
