This chapter covers the general aspects regarding the mechanisms of the four specific branches of iatrogenic immunopathology: iatrogenic immunodeficiencies, iatrogenic-induced lymphoproliferative diseases, hypersensitivity-induced lesions and immunopathology of transplantation. Understanding the four types of hypersensitivity reactions is mandatory for understanding the details of drug-induced lesions in organs. Mechanisms and complications of transplantation of solid organs are shown in detail.

Keywords: Adverse drug reaction, Bone marrow, Graft-versus-host disease, Host-versus-graft disease, Hypersensitivity reactions, Iatrogenic, Immunopathology, Lymphoid tissue, Lymphoproliferative disease, Rejection, Transplant.
