    Abstract

    © 2016Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) has been performed as a successful life-saving treatment for hematological and neoplastic diseases. Despite the predictable long-term survival rates in BMT, pulmonary complications reduce the survival rates significantly mainly because of chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). This report briefly discusses a successful lung transplantation case for severe lung GVHD after allograft for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This case report supports the scarce evidence in the literature for the importance of lung transplantation as a therapeutic option for patients who develop respiratory failure secondary to BMT.
