Abstract

A patient with severe bilateral emphysema has survived more than 31/2 months after receiving a single-lung allograft. At least seven presumed episodes of rejection were identified and reversed by massive pulsed intravenous doses of methyl prednisolone. When allograft rejection was controlled, no serious or progressive ventilation-perfusion imbalances occurred and the allograft provided the majority of effective ventilation and pulmonary blood-flow, with consequent improvement in the patient's respiratory status.
