Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) is a rare but life-threatening complication after solid organ transplantation. The risk of PTLD varies with recipient age, serostatus of the donor and the recipient for Epstein-Barr virus, type of organ transplanted, and intensity of immunosuppression. The risk of PTLD is highest in the early post-transplant period, but the cumulative risk increases with time. We report a case of PTLD occurring 17 years after renal transplantation in a 59-year-old woman.
