Epstein-Barr virus-associated post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders after allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for Hodgkin-like adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma.
Summary of "Epstein-Barr virus-associated post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders after allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for Hodgkin-like adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma."
A 56-year-old woman with Hodgkin-like adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma was treated with allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation on 17 April 2009. She manifested a moderate fever on day 41. CT scanning and other examinations detected slightly swollen lymph nodes, and pathological findings of right axillary lymph nodes revealed an Epstein-Barr virus-associated post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder. She was successfully treated with rituximab.

Epstein-barr Virus Infections
Infection with human herpesvirus 4 (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN); which may facilitate the development of various lymphoproliferative disorders. These include BURKITT LYMPHOMA (African type), INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS, and oral hairy leukoplakia (LEUKOPLAKIA, HAIRY).
An angiocentric and angiodestructive lymphoproliferative disorder primarily involving the lungs. It is caused by an Epstein-Barr virus-induced transformation of the B-cells, in a T-cell rich environment. Clinically and pathologically it resembles EXTRANODAL NK-T-CELL LYMPHOMA.
A common, acute infection usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN). There is an increase in mononuclear white blood cells and other atypical lymphocytes, generalized lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, and occasionally hepatomegaly with hepatitis.
Epithelial hyperplasia of the oral mucosa associated with Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) and found almost exclusively in persons with HIV infection. The lesion consists of a white patch that is often corrugated or hairy.
A genus of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, subfamily GAMMAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting B-cells in humans and new world primates. The type species human herpesvirus 4 (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) is better known as the Epstein-Barr virus.
As has been previously shown, the lack of immune surveillance plays a major role in the unchecked proliferation of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-infected B cells in the pathogenesis of B-cell post-transpla...
Some chemotherapeutic agents can cause iatrogenic lymphoproliferative disorders. In analogy to what has been observed with other nucleoside analogues such as cladribine and fludarabine, we document th...
Epstein-Barr virus-associated post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (EBV-PTLD) is a life-threatening complication following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Monitoring...
Assess whether changes in Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) serology status relates to immunohistochemical evidence of active EBV infection in tonsillar tissue of pediatric organ transplant recipients. Childre...
We report the case of a 25-year-old lung and liver transplant recipient who developed respiratory failure. High levels of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) genome copies were detectable in respiratory tract sp...
