Engraftment syndrome (ES) encompasses a continuum of periengraftment complications after autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. ES may include noninfectious fever, skin rash, diarrhea, hepatic dysfunction, renal dysfunction, transient encephalopathy, and capillary leak features, such as noncardiogenic pulmonary infiltrates, hypoxia, and weight gain with no alternative etiologic basis other than engraftment. Given its pleiotropic clinical presentation, the transplant field has struggled to clearly define ES and related syndromes. Here, we present a comprehensive review of ES in all documented disease settings. Furthermore, we discuss the proposed risk factors, etiology, and clinical relevance of ES. Finally, our current approach to ES is included along with a proposed treatment algorithm for the management of this complication.
