Abstract

Background. Experience with organ transplantation in patients with indolent lymphoma is limited, and it is unknown how the natural history of the disease is altered by chronic immunosuppressive therapy. Methods. A patient with type 1 diabetes and renal failure who underwent simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation was found to have stage IV small lymphocytic lymphoma at the time of transplantation. He received quadruple immunosuppressive therapy using interleukin (IL)-2 receptor antibody, tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and prednisone. Results. Patient is doing well 3 years posttransplant with excellent graft function of both the kidney and pancreas without any evidence of progression of the disease. Conclusion. Indolent lymphoma should not be considered an absolute contraindication to organ transplantation.
