ANSWER: C
Severe intimal arteritis (v2), with or without interstitial inflammation and/or tubulitis is considered acute TCMR Grade IIB based on the Banff 2017 classification. However, we now know that arterial lesions (v>0) may be indicative of ABMR, TCMR or mixed ABMR/TCMR and are not restricted to TCMR.
