Item description for Clinical and Diagnostic Pathology of Graft-versus-Host Disease by Berno Heymer, Donald Bunjes, Wilhelm Friedrich, Donald Bunjes & Wilhelm Friedrich...
Subject of the book is the detailed description of the clinical and diagnostic pathology of one of the strangest diseases of man, the so-called Graft-versus-Host-Disease (GvHD). This disease is caused by the reaction of certain donor cells (T-lymphocytes) with tissue of the recipient, i.e. after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, a life-saving measure in patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia etc. In this context a GvHD may develop with severe disease symptoms in skin, gastrointestinal tract, liver, and other organs. If the complication is recognized in time an effective treatment of the potentially lethal GvHD is possible.However, this requires a rapid and reliable recognition of GvHD lesions. The book is based on the histopathological study of more than 1000 biopsies and 50 autopsies performed by the author as the reference pathologist of the center for bone marrow transplantation of the University of Ulm.
