Abstract

Case We report a case of acute oral graft-versus-host disease in an adolescent, which was successfully treated with tacrolimus 0.1% ointment. Conclusion Although tacrolimus ointment is not licensed for the indication of oral GvHD, this case report provides preliminary evidence for a potential effectiveness of using tacrolimus in case of failure when GvHD is resistant.
