Abstract

Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a life-threatening complication after lung transplantation, for which several risk factors including pretransplant seronegativity for Epstein-Barr virus are known. However, the impact of cytomegalovirus on PTLD remains to be determined. Here, we describe a case of Epstein-Barr virus-associated polymorphic PTLD that developed shortly after treatment for cytomegalovirus reactivation in a lung transplant recipient who was preoperatively seropositive for both cytomegalovirus and Epstein-Barr virus.
