Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a complication that often occurs after a transplant using cells from a donor (an allogeneic transplant). This booklet will help you understand:
- the symptoms of GVHD
- the organs it can affect
- treatment options
- steps you can take to minimize the impact of GVHD on your daily life.
Managing GVHD requires a close working relationship between you and your healthcare team. The more you know, the better equipped you will be to take charge of your GVHD.
