INTRODUCTION: Bone marrow transplant (BMT) recipients have a higher risk of developing secondary malignancies. Majority of secondary malignancies are cutaneous or oral mucosal cancers. Secondary cancers most often occur late, usually after 100 days from transplantation. Death caused by malignant neoplasm less than 5 years after transplantation is rare. We report a case of adenocarcinoma of the lung presenting as a secondary malignancy 71 days after bone marrow transplantation.
