Abstract

Hyperacute rejection is an early complication of transplantation, caused by the presence in the recipient of pre-formed donor-directed antibodies (Ab). We report a case of fatal early graft dysfunction after lung transplantation in a female recipient with no anti-HLA Ab detected before transplantation. Further immunologic studies revealed the presence, in the pre-transplant serum, of low-titer anti-HLA Ab directed against the donor's HLA, detectable only by flow-cytometry screening for panel-reactive antibodies. This observation emphasizes the importance of sensitive Ab detection in patients awaiting lung transplantation. Women should be specifically targeted for such sensitive Ab detection.
