Abstract

We report a five-yr-old child, presenting three yr after heart transplant with acalculous cholecystitis. Histology revealed EBV negative T-cell PTLD. The disease involved the gallbladder, liver, lungs, and mesenteric lymph nodes. He was treated with chemotherapy, went into remission, but relapsed after 11 months and died.
