    We report a case of antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) of a unilateral donor lung in the presence of newly formed donor-specific antibodies, 10 months after living-donor lobar lung transplantation (LDLLT). Of note is that the AMR occurred in the unilateral lung. Furthermore, the lung graft was...
