To the Editor: According to Herrera et al. (Sept. 1 issue),(1) the cord colitis syndrome is distinct from graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). We think that this conclusion lacks the evidence needed for defining a new disease entity and that its manifestations are concordant with a delayed GVHD reaction. Late colitis associated with high mortality was first described in mice after allogeneic and xenogeneic (rat) bone marrow transplantation.(2) This colitis in mice was responsive to antibiotics.(3) Furthermore, the histopathological findings in the cord colitis syndrome are consistent with the lesions described in monkeys and mice with chronic GVHD(4) and are not at . . .
