The cause of both conditions is suggested to be the compression of the renal parenchyma by subcapsular collection, which results in increased erythropoietin and renin secretion due to ischaemic kidney (page kidney
Page kidney is a phenomenon first described by Irving Page in 1939.
Page kidney, a phenomenon whereby external compression of renal parenchyma induces hypertension and decreased renal function in renal transplant patients, is an unusual complication of renal transplant biopsies despite the high number of renal transplant biopsies performed.

In a similar case of recurrent, solitary Page kidney, (4) initial conservative radiologic management via percutaneous drainage of the subcapsular renal hematoma (along with sclerosing attempts) failed, leading to eventual definitive management requiring embolization.

Potential late complications include retroperitoneal fibrosis and Page kidney
is defined as the external compression of the kidney, typically by a subcapsular hematoma, that leads to hypertension due to hypoperfusion and ischemia.
One patient had an ischemic kidney (page kidney

In addition, the enlarged polycystic kidneys may have also caused compression of the transplant kidney leading to a "Page kidney
." This phenomenon was first described in an experiment by Irwin Page in 1939, where canine kidneys were wrapped in cellophane to induce arterial hypertension via activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone pathway.[sup.9] A Page kidney
