Spanish term or phrase: ...la circunstancia de coincidir el órgano diana y el órgano transplantado
Las infecciones representan un reto en el seguimiento del paciente receptor de un transplante. La inmunosupresión obligada supone un mayor riesgo de infecciones bacterianas, víricas y fúngicas, la mayor respiratorias. En el trasplante pulmonar se da la circunstancia de coincidir el órgano diana y el órgano trasplantado, con el consiguiente peligro de rechazo de dicho órgano.

OK, the text is about treating a fungal infection in a lung transplant recipient. My question is about "... se da la circunstancia de coincidir..." Surely in all organ transplants the donor organ must match... Also it is a bilateral transplant, so it's not like the donor organ has to match an existing lung... what am I missing here?

Help greatly appreciated, particularly from those with knowledge of the field.
