Abstract

The incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after non-myeloablative (NMA) allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCI) is unknown. In addition, very few studies on the predisposing factors for DVT post SCT have been published. The incidence of DVT among patients that underwent NMA allo-SCT at our hospital was 4.1% (3 of 73) over the course of last 8 years, and to the best of our knowledge this is the first study to report the incidence of DVT following NMA allo-SCT. The present findings show that NMA allo-SCT patients may have multiple risk factors for DVT. Herein we present 3 cases of DVT following NMA allo-SCT and a literature review.
