In April 1972, a Symposium on Morphology of Lung Transplantation was organized as part of the Seventh Congress of the European Society for Experimental Surgery. It was the purpose of the symposium to bring together interested surgeons and pathologists to present available morphologic material from autotransplantation and allotransplantation of the lung in experimental animals and man.

The volume contains 24 formal presentations made at that meeting. The text is divided into three major sections entitled "Rejection," "Preservation," and "Regeneration/Degeneration." A short summation of panel discussions concludes each section.

The first section is composed of a series of histologic observations of autotransplantation and allotransplantation of the lung in dogs, baboons, and man with and without immunosuppressive therapy. Most papers include both light and electron microscopic observations. There was general agreement of the description of allograft rejection in untreated animals. There was less agreement regarding the morphology of rejection in immunosuppressed recipients.
