Stem cell transplant (SCT) is the “standard of care” for several malignant disorders such as leukemia as well as nonmalignant disorders such as thalassemia and aplastic anemia. In SCT, family (usually a sibling) is screened for human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched related donor (MRD), and failing this, matched unrelated donor (MUD) transplants are considered. There are seven major steps involved in the process of MUD SCT, while the patient is prepared for receiving the SCT in parallel after achieving remission. Here, we report the timelines involved in MUD SCT along with a case report and review of literature.
