Abstract

Lymphoproliferative disease remains a small but worrisome problem after organ transplantation. This disorder is often a B-cell proliferation associated with Epstein-Barr virus. This article describes the unusual association of Epstein-Barr virus with a T-cell lymphoma in a child after heart transplantation and ultimately an atypical rejection episode with an increased number of eosinophils.
