Abstract

B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (B-NHL) is a well-documented complication of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Marginal zone (mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue; MALT) lymphomas constitute a less common type of B-NHL. In this article, we report a case of liver MALT in a cirrhotic patient, incidentally discovered after liver transplantation (LT). We discuss pertinent diagnostic and management strategies in this clinical setting.
