Rappeport et al first reported the clinical syndrome of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in syngeneic bone marrow transplant patients. Recently, there have been more reports of a GVHD-like syndrome in syngeneic bone marrow transplant patients (SGVHD) that may result in significant clinical morbidity. A total of 17 cases of SGVHD in syngeneic bone marrow transplant patients have been reported to date in the medical literature. The current report reviews these cases and presents two additional cases of severe SGVHD that have occurred at our institution.
