In brief: Dysfunction of Organ

The major signs and symptoms relate to dysfunction of the transplanted organ.
These may be detected in abnormal blood tests such as increased creatinine (kidney), or bilirubin (liver), or blood glucose (pancreas). If rejection is subtle there may be changes only detected on a biopsy of the transplanted organ. Severe rejections may cause fever, chills, lethargy, or swelling and pain in the organ.
