    Abstract

    A case is described of late pulmonary graft failure in a heart lung transplant recipient. The major characteristics were alveolar fibrosis and a restrictive physiological deficit. Epstein-Barr virus was implicated as an aetiological agent using immunohistochemical analysis and by a response to treatment with ganciclovir.
