Abstract
Unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT) has been worldwide for bone marr ow reconstitution. CBT is associated with a high frequency of engraftment f ailure and rejection due to a small dose of graft cells. In cases of engraf tment failure or rejection following unrelated CBT retransplantation from t he original donors is impossible. We report a successful transplantation wi th CD34(+) blood cells selected from a 2-loci HLA-mismatched mother to a ch ild with acute monocytic leukemia after engraftment failure of the primary CBT. Selected CD34(+) blood cell transplantation is a useful approach for r etransplantation in the setting of engraftment failure. (C) 2001 The Japane se Society of Hematology.
