Title: Secondary malignancies after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

Abstract: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) offers patients with malignant and nonmalignant diseases the oportunity to pursue life-prolonging therapy. The number of survivors after successful HSCT is continually increasing. However, HSCT can induce tissue and organ damage that occurs not only “on treatment” , but long after completing therapy. Secondary malignancies belong to serious late complications after HSCT. A significant association of certain risk factors with increased likelihood of secondary malignancies after HSCT has been published over the last ten years. Better knowledge of pathogenesis of these complications, their early identification and treatment may contribute to better health outcomes of allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation recipients. We review here the incidence and risk factors of secondary malignancies after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
