Abstract

Living-donor lobar lung transplantation was performed in a 10-year-old boy with bronchiolitis obliterans after bone marrow transplantation for recurrent acute myeloid leukemia. He developed posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) due to calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) postoperatively, which was recovered with suspension of CNI. PRES should be considered one of the important morbidity after lung transplantation.
