Abstract

Hematopoietic cell transplantation recipients have a high risk of subsequent malignant neoplasms. Among post-transplantation lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLDs) after hematopoietic cell transplantation, Hodgkin's lymphoma is rare and distinct from the majority of other PTLDs because of its later onset and relatively good prognosis. It is known to be associated with exposure to the Epstein-Barr virus, and the mixed cellularity subtype is the most common. We herein describe two cases of Hodgkin's lymphoma that developed after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation.
