The mean incidence of veno-occlusive disease in post-hematopoietic stem cell transplantation populations is estimated to be 13.7% overall, although prevalence reports have ranged widely, from 0 to 62%, in individual studies. Multiorgan dysfunction occurs in one quarter to one third of patients with veno-occlusive disease; this disease with associated multiorgan dysfunction may be associated with a mortality rate > 80% after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
