We report a heart transplant recipient who developed graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) following blood transfusion.

We consider that heart transplant recipients should be included in the category of immunosuppressed patients who may develop this disease after being treated with blood products.

We also consider that, at the present time, irradiation of blood products is the only useful method of avoiding development of GVHD in these patients.
