Posttransplant donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSA) cause chronic antibody-mediated rejection. Anti-DR and anti-DQ DSAs have especially been shown to be associated with negative graft function. In contrast, the prevalence and significance of anti-DP DSA have not been well established and remain unclear. We report a case of living donor kidney transplantation. The level of serum creatinine gradually became elevated because of chronic active antibody-mediated rejection, which was considered to be caused by anti-DP DSA. In this report, we indicate the significance of pretransplant screening for HLA-DP in donors to evaluate more comprehensively the donor specificity of posttransplant HLA antibodies.
