Graft versus host disease (GvHD)
Graft versus host disease (GvHD) is a possible complication after a bone marrow or stem cell transplant from another person. This is called a donor transplant or an allogeneic transplant. It happens when white blood cells in the donated bone marrow or stem cells attack your own body cells.
Understanding more about how GvHD develops and what the treatment is might help you cope if you develop this complication.
