abstract

  • HL is a late complication of solid organ transplantation. The high HL risk in recipients who were young or EBV seronegative at the time of transplant and the fact that most HL tumors were EBV positive highlight the role of primary EBV infection and poor immune control of this virus. The occurrence of HL may rise with improved long-term survival in transplant recipients.
