Abstract

Graft rejection is the most common factor that limits graft survival after transplantation. During infancy, the humoral immune system is partially suppressed and humoral rejection of a cardiac allograft has not been reported in the absence of risk factors such as prior transplantation, blood transfusions, ventricular assist devices, and elevation of panel reactive antibodies. We present a case of an infant with dilated cardiomyopathy who developed multiple episodes of acute humoral rejection after heart transplantation in the absence of risk factors.
