A 35-year-old woman, who had a renal transplant flve years ago, developed malignant lymphoma of the mediastinum. The lymphoma was of lymphoblastic type and had T-cell immunophenotype. Most transplant-related lymphomas are of B-cell type. T-cell lymphoma in this setting is extremely rare, and the mechanism of development may be different from that of B-cell lymphomas.
