The number of patients undergoing solid organ transplants and surviving long-term has increased enormously in the last 10 years. This means that pathologists in non-specialist transplant centres are increasingly involved in the interpretation of biopsy and autopsy material from allograft recipients. This includes evaluation of allograft histology, or specimens from other native tissues, which nonetheless still have to be assessed in the setting of transplantation and immunosuppressive therapy. In this first review article we will provide an overview of the pathology of lung transplantation, and briefly describe heart and pancreatic transplants, as well as aspects of general surgical pathology and the role of the autopsy in these patients.
