INTRODUCTION: Post transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) occurs in 5% of patients. PTLD has been categorized as monomorphic occurring early and polymorphic mostly occurring as a late presentation (greater than 1-year post transplant). Epstein Barr virus (EBV) is believed to be an essential factor in pathogenesis of PTLD. Our case is unique because it is the first reported case of bladder PTLD being reported in the lung transplant population.
