Gastrointestinal Infections After Solid Organ or Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

  • Christopher J. Damman
  • George B. McDonald


The gastrointestinal tract is a common site of infection in patients who are immunosuppressed following either solid organ (SOT) or hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Prophylactic regiments and screening have decreased the rate of infections, but despite these advances viruses, fungi, and bacteria continue to be a major cause of morbidity. In this chapter we first present a transplant-specific approach to gastrointestinal infections followed by a problem-oriented approach to gastrointestinal symptoms after transplant.
