Abstract

Face transplants have been clinically established, and early acute rejections have been reported. Late acute rejections have been less common. Immediate and accurate diagnosis along with successful treatment is critical to prevent graft damage. This case report describes the successful treatment of a severe, steroid-resistant rejection 2 years after a full face transplant.
