Abstract

Purpose. We present two cases of severe dry eve in patients with chronic graft-versus-host disease (CGVHD) after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT) who were successfully treated by the systemic administration of FK506 and corticosteroids, Methods and Results. A 29-year-old man with chronic myelogenous leukemia underwent SCT. Oral and lung CGVHD developed on approximately; day 130, and dry eye associated with CGVHD was diagnosed on dau168. The patient began receiving cyclosporin a (150 mg/d) for the treatment of oral and lung CGVHD. Treatment with prednisolone (1 mg/kg/d) began on approximately day 300. Oral and lung GHD improved slightly, but worsened again although systemic administration of cyclosporin A and prednisolone werecontinued. Cyclosporin A was discontinued, and systemic administration of FK506 was started on day 376. Forty-four days later, marked improvement in the ocular surface and other organs was observed. However, the dry eve worsened while tapering FK506, with no flare of other affected organs. A 43-year-old woman with myelodysplastic syndrome underwent SCT. She received FK506for prophylaxis of CGVHD. She had mild dry eye before SCT. Oral and intestinal CGVHD developed, and the dry eve worsened significantly on approximately day 150 while tapering FK506. Treatment with prednisolone (1 mg/kg/d) began, and the dose of FK506 was increased. By day 240, the symptoms of dry eye and the findings of the ocular surface markedly improved, and CGVHD in other organs was completely resolved. However, the improvement in the dry eye was lost when FK506 was tapered tor the second time. Conclusion, Systemicadministration of FK506 with corticosteroids is an effective treatment of severe dry eye in patients with CGVHD, but lone-term administration may be required to achieve a lasting response.. These cases also suggest that further investigation into the use of topical FK506 and prednisolone as a maintenance therapy should be pursued.
