This case report describes an atypical form of acute pulmonary allograft rejection that was refractory to conventional therapy. The rejection manifested primarily as interstitial lymphocytic infiltrates with little perivascular involvement. Despite aggressive therapy the patient died within 7 months of transplant. The timely recognition and treatment of unusual forms of allograft rejection is vital in the management of pulmonary transplant patients.
