Summary
Brief summary
This paper reports on the post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) experience of a single centre heart and lung transplant unit from its inception in 1984 to 2011 with respect to patient demographics, risk factors, management and outcomes. This detailed retrospective analysis aims to identify risk factors and describe outcomes in heart and lung transplant patients with PTLD to understand the unique clinical features of their disease in order to further develop tailored treatment strategies and prophylaxis.
