Objective. Urologic complications are among the most common complications after kidney transplantation. These complications are urinary retention, hematuria, hemorrhage, urinary leakage, vesicoureteral reflux, pyelonephritis, and nephrolithiasis. Although neurogenic bladder is one of the indications for kidney transplantation, it is not considered in the literature to be an expected complication after transplantation. In this case, we discuss the nursing care of a patient who underwent kidney transplantation from a living donor and developed neurogenic bladder.
