Twitter Poll (February 20, 2019)

ANSWER: B

The findings are suspicious for active antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR), based on the presence of moderate glomerulitis (g2), severe peritubular capillaritis (ptc3) and C4d staining in PTCs (C4d2). Serologic evidence of DSA is advised in order to meet the criteria for diagnosis.
