Overview

The Transplantation Infectious Disease and Compromised Host Program is a part of the life-long care provided to solid organ, bone marrow and stem cell transplant recipients and other immunocompromised individuals with special risk for infections. This program provides in-patient and ambulatory care for this unique "at risk" population.

This program provides:

  • Inpatient consultation for infectious disease management in solid organ and hematopoietic transplant recipients and donors, for patients with acute hematopoietic malignancies and for other individuals with immune deficiencies
  • Outpatient care for the same populations
  • Disease prevention – appropriate pre- and post-transplant vaccination and individually designed strategies for prophylaxis
  • Travel advice in advance or following travel by our patients
  • Antifungal stewardship program for Mass General

The staff members of the Transplant Infectious Disease Program are all members of the Infectious Disease Division and have specialized expertise in the care of the immunocompromised hosts.
