PTLD
Figure 3. PTLD involvement of allograft kidney. PTLD is often extranodal and frequently involves the allgoraft itself. In the case of renal transplant recipients, allograft involvement is seen in about 1/3 of cases. Such involvement may develop as an infiltrative process or it may form one or more tumors.The tumor presents in this case as a yellow mass which projects from the surface of the kidney.
