“…The histological finding in this case differed from that of the typical lichenoid GVHD which occurs in the setting of BMT in that the inflammatory infiltrate was very brisk, compared to the sparse infiltrate typically associated with BMT 5,7 , 16 . The diagnoses of lichenoid drug eruption and LP were initially favored in this patient, despite a clinical suspicion of GVHD, with resultant delay in management.…”

“…The diagnosis of GVHD after liver transplantation may be delayed because it is uncommonly seen, and the presentation may have features that are atypical in timing, manifestation, and histology as compared with post‐BMT GVHD. Therefore, the detection of chimerism is important in diagnosis 7,19–21 . However, a low degree of chimerism, most apparent in the CD8(+) T/natural killer (NK) cell population, may be found in many liver transplant subjects without GVHD.…”

“…In 61 cases (60.4%), sepsis was documented as cause of death. The causative organism was reported in 25 cases (41%); invasive aspergillosis was noted in 9 cases 1, 9, 1217 (36%), disseminated candidiasis in 7 (28%) (3 albicans , 1 kruseii , 1 glabrata and 2 unspecified species) 1, 9, 18, 19 , enterococci in 7 (28%) 1, 2023 and Enterobacter in 2 (8%) 1, 24 .…”

“…As the rash evolves, bullae and full-thickness denudation may develop, along with hemorrhagic crusting at mucosal orifices. 17 Destruction of the intestinal mucosa results in a loss of absorptive capacity, leading to diarrhea. 1 Bone marrow involvement can manifest as pancytopenia, which carries a poor prognosis due to the risk of hemorrhage and an increased susceptibility to infection.…”
