Abstract Transition from pediatric to adult care in renal transplantation has emerged as a critical step in the life of a young kidney recipient. During this phase, young patients are faced with the physiological and psychological changes associated with adolescence that can lead to non-compliance and potentially graft loss. To date, there is not a unique accepted model of transition, however it has been proved that the presence of a multidisciplinary team including specialists in adolescent management and in the transition from pediatric to adult transplant care is beneficial during this at-risk phase. The goal of this team is to ensure a progressive transition of the patients according to a precise plan and time line.
