Heart Allograft Biopsy Interpretation

Rejection
Figure 2. Multifocal aggressive infiltrates with areas of myocyte injury are the key features used to diagnose multifocal moderate acute rejection. In this photomicrograph, from a biopsy obtained 3 weeks after transplantation, note perivascular and interstitial infiltrate, that is generally more severe than seen in mild acute rejection.
