Lymphocele is a well-known complication of kidney transplantation. Patients usually present with deteriorating renal function, hydronephrosis, a nontender lower abdominal mass or ipsilateral leg edema. Urinary retention, however, is an unusual presentation of lymphocele. We herein report a case of a female patient who developed chronic urinary retention due to a pelvic lymphocele after kidney transplantation.
