Summary note:
"Chronic graft versus host disease (GVHD) is the most common complication of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Because of the protracted clinical course of chronic GVHD, transplant centers and hematology/oncology offices are inadequately equipped to manage these immuno-incornpetent patients with a multisystem disorder. Practitioners need to be able to recognize and effectively manage chronic GVHD as a late effect of more than half of allogeneic transplantations. The text is oriented for the clinician, with chapters covering staging, organ site and system-specific manifestations, treatment options, and supportive care. Drs. Georgia B. Vogelsang and Steven Z. Pavletic have been pioneers in the recognition of the multiorgan complexity of this disease and have gathered the input of a variety of subspeciaiist physicians for this book. This book fills the gap in practical literature on chronic GVHD, providing a comprehensive, up-to-date, and clinically relevant resource for anyone who deals with cancer patients posttransplant."--BOOK JACKET.
