Objective. Although the number of end-stage renal disease patients on the waiting list has increased, the number of deceased kidney donors has not increased proportionately. Therefore, the use of kidney donors defined as "marginal" has become an issue. Since the acceptance of deaths due to poisoning or suicide as donors has been proposed, we evaluated the clinical courses of kidney transplantations from suicidal death donors.
