Sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS) is a potentially life-threatening complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We assessed the proposed pediatric EBMT criteria along with the Baltimore and modified Seattle criteria in a population-based cohort. Eighty-seven children (1.1-17.3 years) undergoing myeloablative HSCT from 2010 to 2017 were consecutively included at the Danish National Transplantation Center. In total, 39 (44.8%) patients fulfilled the EBMT criteria and 30 patients (35%) fulfilled the criteria for severe or very severe SOS. Nine (10.3%) patients fulfilled the modified Seattle criteria while none met the Baltimore criteria. Patients fulfilling the EBMT criteria for SOS had longer primary admission (31 days (23-183) vs. 27 days (17-61), p = 0.001), were treated more intensively with diuretics within the first 3 months (29 days (0-90) vs. 3.5 days (0-90), p < 0.0001), and had a longer time to stable platelet counts >50 × 109/L (32 days (16-183) vs. 23 days (14-101), p < 0.0001). Two patients, fulfilling neither Baltimore nor Seattle criteria, but selectively fulfilling EBMT criteria, died of treatment-related acute inflammatory complications within 1 year post-HSCT. In conclusion, application of the pediatric EBMT diagnostic and severity criteria may be helpful in identifying patients at increased risk of severe treatment-related complications and mortality, although with a risk of over-diagnosing SOS.
