Opportunistic Infections

Figure 9. Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders can also occasionally involve the hilum of the allograft and produce symptoms of biliary tract obstruction or stricturing. This can be due to expansion of the hilar lymph nodes or as shown in this photomicrograph, the atypical cells can directly overrun the hilar structures.

Please mail comments, corrections or suggestions to the TPIS administration at the UPMC.
