Figure 7 (A and B): Engraftment Syndrome. Relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma with chronic liver disease, post autologous stem cell transplant had on and off spikes of fever from Day 5. On Day 16, the patient developed fever and sudden onset of dyspnea with petechiae, hematuria, and hemorrhage from endotracheal tube. CT Topogram (A) and axial lung window sections (B) show confluent opacities in perihilar distribution with ground glass opacities and bilateral pleural effusion. With clinical corroboration, possibility of pulmonary hemorrhage and noncardiogenic pulmonary edema with suspicion of engraftment syndrome was given. Patient succumbed to death on Day 19 due to disseminated intravascular coagulation
