Lymphocele is one of the most common complications following renal transplantation and can lead to an increase in morbidity. Its incidence has been reported to vary from 0.6% to 20%. The use of ultrasonography has increased the index of detection of lymphocele though the majority of them have small size and resolved spontaneously. We describe a case of a postrenal transplant patient who developed anuria due to transplanted ureteric compression by lymphocele in deceased donor dual-renal transplantation in the right renal fossa. When a transplanted patient comes with a history of sudden anuria, one should consider ureteric compression resulting from lymphocele as a possible cause.
