Abstract

There is growing evidence for a graft-versus-myeloma effect following allogeneic stem cell transplantation. We add to this evidence by reporting complete remission achieved by withdrawal of immunosuppression in a patient with multiple myeloma progressing after HLA-identical sibling peripheral stem cell transplantation. De novo chronic graft-versus-host disease coincided with the anti-myeloma effect and responded to treatment. The patient remains in complete remission 3 years after transplant.
