    France - First face transplant patient Isabelle Dinoire dies

    She told the BBC in 2009 that when she looked in the mirror she saw a mixture of herself and the donor. "The donor is always with me," she said.

    Figaro newspaper said she had suffered another transplant rejection. The strong anti-rejection treatment she was receiving led to two cancers, it added.

    A useful informative article:


    Isabelle Dinoire, the first-ever recipient of a partial face transplant, died in April after a long illness, according to a statement from the Amiens University Hospital in France.
    She was surrounded by family, according to the hospital’s statement, who wished to keep her death private and out of the press while they grieved, which is why it wasn’t reported at the time.
