Abstract

A successful liver/small intestinal transplantation with a blood group O donor to a blood type A recipient is described. Mild graft versus host disease developed, manifested by hemolysis, but did not result in graft loss or patient mortality. This suggests that minor ABO incompatibility may be tolerated with intestinal transplantation, despite the transplantation of large amounts of lymphoid tissue.
