CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA ARISING IN PATIENT WITH HODGKIN LYMPHOMA TREATED WITH PERIPHERAL BLOOD STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION -CASE REPORT
Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLDs) are lymphoid or plasmacytic proliferations that develop as a consequence of immunosuppression in a recipient of a solid organ, bone marrow or stem cell allograft. The development of PTLDs is usually associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and the disorder is also termed EBV-associated lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD). The development of PTLD is a rare complication in autologous bone marrow/peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. In the present study, we report a case of LPD which developed following autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for relapsing Hodgkin's lymphoma.
