Late-onset noninfectious pulmonary complications (LONIPCs) occurring beyond 3 months after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) have become recognized as life-threatening complications, and they reduce the recipient's quality of life. However, the pathogenesis and optimal treatment for LONIPCs are still unclear. In this study, we retrospectively analyzed the incidence and outcome of LONIPCs among allo-SCT recipients. Between October 1993 and September 2001, 96 patients underwent allo… CONTINUE READING
