Purpose

The use of cyclosporine and mini-dose methotrexate (MTX) is a common strategy for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis in allogeneic transplants. We investigated whether patients who receive fewer than the planned MTX doses are at increased risk for GVHD.

Methods

The study cohort included 103 patients who received allogeneic transplants at the Department of Pediatrics of The Catholic University of Korea College of...

Graft-versus-host disease is commonly observed after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation but rarely recognized transfusion or solid-organ transplantation. Transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease can occur in immunosuppressed recipients and immunocompetent transplant recipients. The clinical manifestations of gastrointestinal or hepatic dysfunction, rash and pancytopenia should heighten the physician's index of suspicion for GVHD. Among premature infants, only four cases have been reported to develop...
