Acquired cystic disease predisposes to renal cell carcinoma. We describe a patient who had received kidney transplant 7 years back with normal allograft function who suffered sudden cardiac death at home and was discovered to have acquired cystic disease and renal cell carcinoma in her native kidneys. This case highlights the need to assess native kidneys periodically after kidney transplant.
