Introduction: Various disorders can exist in kidney transplant recipients due to chronic kidney disease which liver abnormalities are common among them. In this study, the prevalence and type of abnormal liver ultrasound findings in kidney transplant patients were evaluated.

Method: Pre-transplant medical data of 480 patients who underwent kidney transplant from deceased donors during the last 6 years in 3 hospitals were evaluated. Abnormal liver ultrasound findings including fatty liver, hemangioma, gallstones, hepatic cysts, etc. were recorded and analyzed.
Results: The mean age was 39.07±12.67 years of which 52.70% were male and 42.30% were female. Liver disorders were observed in 13.12% of patients. The highest prevalence was related to fatty liver grade I (2.5%), grade II (1.46%), gallstone (1.25%) and liver cysts (1.25%).
Discussion: Various liver disorders may exist in patients candidate for kidney transplantation, of which, some are relevant and others are irrelevant to the underlying disease. Some of these disorders including gallstones, liver cysts, and gallbladder polyps may require treatment measures prior to kidney transplantation. Therefore, diagnosis of these disorders and their treatment before kidney transplantation would prevent their complications after transplantation.
