About this book

This text provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable resource for clinicians, pathologists and researchers with an interest in GVHD and its mimickers. The book reviews new data about risk factors affecting outcomes, pathologic features, and profiles the new WHO guidelines as well as current practices. The richly illustrated text covers the gamut of gross and histologic presentations of acute GVHD in skin, gut, liver, and additional organs affected by chronic GVHD.  An engaging aspect of this book is the format of patient based cases as the focus for the major chapters teaching points. The case presentations include both infectious and toxic complications that mimic GVHD, or displaying similar morphologies.  Recent up to date references on clinical investigations and pathogenesis make the reading and teaching resonant with the readers. 


Pathology of Graft vs. Host Disease will serve as a very useful resource for physicians and researchers dealing with, and interested in, this challenging disease. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters were written by experienced transplant physicians with expertise in their fields.
