Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is a potentially curative procedure for a variety of hematologic and immunologic disorders. Despite the powerful therapeutic potential, both acute, and chronic toxicities including graft versus host disease (GVHD) and cardiovascular disease can lead to significant short- and long-term morbidity and mortality. While GVHD can affect any organ, cardiac involvement is rarely described in the literature. In this review, we review available literature, and allude to pathophysiology and therapeutic approaches in cardiac GVHD.
