A rapid molecular diagnosis of posttransfusion graft-versus-host disease by polymerase chain reaction.


A woman with recurrent Paget's disease of the vulva developed acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) 12 days after radical surgery and massive blood transfusion. Molecular diagnosis of lymphocyte chimerism in the peripheral blood was made by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) directed against a Y chromosome-specific sex-determining region Y (SRY) gene.
