Abstract

Advances in lung transplantation have improved 1-year survival rates, but allograft dysfunction continues to be a significant cause of post-transplant death. Diffuse alveolar damage is an early indication of allograft dysfunction and has been linked to gastroesophageal reflux. We report a case of diffuse alveolar damage-associated allograft dysfunction in a patient found to have significant non-acid gastroesophageal reflux.
