Abstract

Patients of the Jehovah's Witness faith generally do not accept transfusions of blood or blood products but some will accept cadaveric organs for transplantation. We report a left single lung transplantation in a 48-year-old Hispanic female with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and secondary pulmonary hypertension. We believe this is the first reported case of lung transplantation in a Jehovah's Witness. Copyright (C) 1999 International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation.
