CONT

Le rejet chronique, d'étiologie multiple mais avant tout immunologique, est responsable d'une altération progressive et irréversible de la fonction du greffon. Histologiquement, il réalise une vasculopathie chronique spécifique de l'organe greffé, essentiellement fibrosante et proliférante. Les lésions d'artériosclérose accélérée du greffon diffèrent de celles de l'athérome classique, car elles sont diffuses et circonférentielles, avec hyperplasie concentrique de l'intima, respectant la limitante élastique interne et d'évolution rapide en quelques mois.

Key term(s)
  • artériosclérose accélérée
