Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD)

Graft versus host disease (GvHD) is a condition that might occur after a transplant. The donated bone marrow in the case of GvHD, or peripheral blood stem cells view the recipient’s body as foreign, and the donated cells/bone marrow attack the body.

Forms of GvHD

  • iconAcute graft versus host disease (Acute GvHD).
  • iconicon Chronic graft versus host disease (Chronic GvHD).

As a transplant recipient, you might experience either form of GvHD, both forms.

Acute GvHD occurs when the donor’s cells are being engrafted in the transplant recipient. It might develop in your eyes, liver, skin gastrointestinal tract, and these symptoms might appear within weeks.

Chronic GvHD can appear at any time after allogeneic transplants or several years after your transplant. Chronic GvHD might occur in the mouth, eyes, skin, lungs, liver, gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary tract, or neuromuscular system.
