Abstract

Acute cellular rejection remains a serious and frequent complication during the posttransplant course of small bowel allograft recipients. Currently, small bowel biopsies are the optimal method to identify this form of rejection. The morphological criteria for this diagnosis have been known for some time; however, no consensus study has classified these changes. To address issues in bowel transplant pathology, several pathologists experienced in this particular subdiscipline participated in a Pathology Workshop preceding the VIIIth International Small Bowel Transplant Symposium in Miami, Florida. Among the results of this workshop was the development a standardized grading scheme for acute cellular rejection in small bowel transplants.
