Abstract: Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a life-threatening Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-driven B-cell malignancy occurring in 1 to 3% of renal transplant patients.(1.2) Recently, EBV DNA quantification has become a useful tool for identifying patients at risk of developing PTLD.(3-5) However, studies on EBV load differ in design, methodology and type of patients.
