Increased incidence of tendinitis and tendon ruptures is reported in recipients of a kidney transplant. Two cases of bilateral achilles tendon rupture after minimal trauma are described. Tendon ruptures are more frequent in individuals with kidney disease in dialysis or after transplantation compared with patients receiving other organ transplantations. It is therefore more likely that tendon ruptures are related to metabolic changes associated with kidney disease rather than with transplantation or with glucocorticoid treatment per se. Clinical symptoms of achilles tendinitis should be considered as warning signs prior to tendon rupture and treated appropriately to avoid further morbidity. There is no contraindication towards surgical suturing of an achilles tendon rupture in patients receiving immunosuppressive treatment including glucocorticoids.
