Six pelvic lymphoceles occurred in a series of 88 renal transplants. All of the patients had ipsilateral leg edema and one-half had a urinary tract infection and/or pain. Displacement of the urinary bladder away from the kidney with or without some degree of ureteral obstruction was diagnostic. External or internal drainage re-
sulted in relief of the symptoms.
