Speaking about the patient, Dr. R Balasubramaniyam, Chief Nephrologist, Kauvery Hospital Chennai said, "The boy's kidney was completely incapable of functioning and had to be transplanted as soon as possible. We immediately checked with the family and were able to identify his own mother as the potential donor. During the routine blood tests, we found that the blood groups of the boy and the mother were different. The boy was of B blood group, while the mother was of AB Blood group. Ideally, a Kidney Transplant requires the blood groups to match, as one blood group has antibodies against another blood group.
