Abstract

Appendiceal diseases are relatively rare reported complications during hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with no guidance on management. Pre- and post-transplant patients should receive a trial of medical therapy with appendectomy after recovery but prior to transplant in the former and plan for appendectomy after completion of immunosuppression in the latter.
