Abstract COVID-19 pandemic makes us adjust our standards and cope with unpredictable circumstances affecting the whole world around, including the medical field. A 2-year-old boy diagnosed with X-linked Lymphoproliferative Disease Type 2 (XLP2) with concomitant positive PCR test for EBV-DNA was admitted to our transplant ward. His treatment scheme had to be modified at the last moment, because of a donor disqualification due to a positive PCR result for SARS-CoV2 just before the apheresis. We de...

The cardiac effects of the novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) include myocarditis, takotsubo cardiomyopathy, pericardial effusion, and cardioembolic events in the general population. The effects of SARS-CoV-2 in heart transplant patients are unclear. We describe a case of myocarditis in the transplanted heart that responded to methylprednisolone.

BACKGROUND: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has affected all facets of life and continues to cripple nations. COVID-19 has taken the lives of more than 2.1 million people worldwide, with a global mortality rate of 2.2%. Current COVID-19 treatment options include supportive respiratory care, parenteral corticosteroids, and remdesivir. Although COVID-19 is associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality in patients with comorbidities, the vulnerability, clinical course, optimal manag...
ABSTRACT Background Kidney transplant recipients are at high risk of severe complications and death due to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Methods The first part of the article describes a case of COVID-19 in our patient after a recent kidney transplant. The second part of the article presents the outcome of literature search from multiple resources from April 2020 until March 2021. Abstracts were screened, followed by full-text review with data extraction. Part 2 discusses current treatmen...

Liver injury is one of the nonpulmonary manifestations described in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Post-COVID-19 cholangiopathy is a special entity of liver injury that has been suggested as a variant of secondary sclerosing cholangitis in critically ill patients (SSC-CIP). In the general population, the outcome of SSC-CIP has been reported to be poor without orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). However, the role of OLT for post-COVID-19 cholangiopathy is unknown. We present a case repo...

Abstract Introduction Molecular testing such as nasopharyngeal viral polymerase chain reaction (PCR) (NVP) is available now in most hospitals and widely used to identify respiratory viral infections (RVIs) in solid organ transplantation (SOT) recipients. Materials and Methods A retrospective multicenter study at 8 hospitals from March 1, 2016, to April 30, 2019. We included all adult SOT recipients who were admitted to the hospitals and had their first NVP post transplantation. Results A total o...

Abstract Background There are few reports about the usefulness of Maryland Aggregate Pathology Index (MAPI) score in procurement biopsies. This study aimed to evaluate the association between histopathological analysis according to MAPI and unfavorable outcomes in the first year after kidney transplantation (KT). Methods This retrospective study included deceased-donor KT patients whose grafts were biopsied before transplantation and had low MAPI scores ( 0.5 (2 patients), arteriolar hyalinosis ...
Abstract Introduction Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic was anticipated to have a negative impact on organ donation. With the differences in healthcare system and lockdown policies among various regions, the effect on organ donation and transplant service may be different. Most of the deceased organ donor referrals in our hospital came from non-intensive care units (non-ICU). The objective of this study is to report our experience and quantify the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on d...

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has resulted in many challenges in patient care, especially among high-risk populations such as heart transplant recipients. Patients with heart transplant experience a significantly higher mortality rate with COVID-19 infection, and management is based on extrapolation from clinical trials done on nontransplant patients and from clinical experience. Here we report 4 cases of patients with heart transplant who presented with COVID-19 infection in late 2020. Pa...

Abstract Background Solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients are a complex, immunocompromised population in whom greater COVID-19 mortality has been reported as compared to the general population. Methods We examined a retrospective cohort of 58 SOT recipients with first-wave COVID-19, comparing patients with severe and non-severe illness. Additionally, SOT patients are compared to general first-wave COVID-19 patients. Results Organs transplanted included 38 kidneys, 8 livers, 5 hearts, 3 pancrea...
