Graft-versus-host disease is a common complication of allogenic hematopoietic cell transplantation and less frequently of solid organ transplantation. The skin is one of the initial and main organs affected, and as such, recognizing the dermatologic manifestations allows early diagnosis and treatment. In this article we aim to describe the cutaneous manifestations of graft-versus-host disease so that non-dermatologist is able to recognize the early signs of this complication.
