Abstract

PTLD is a relatively rare but important and feared complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Several different types of risk factors (infectious, type of transplant, immunosuppression) are associated with PTLD development after HSCT. Most PTLD cases after HSCT are Epstein-Barr virus positive. Most PTLD cases occur early after HSCT and the survival after PTLD is poor.
