Background. There is an expanding gap between the number of patients listed for kidney transplantation and the number of kidney transplantations performed annually. The use of sensitive imaging methods results in increased discovery of many urologic asymptomatic problems, such as urolithiases, renal cysts, and solid renal masses. This result has brought the question of whether all donors with these urologic disorders should be rejected for donation.
