Lymphomas affecting the central nervous system (CNS), both primarily and secondarily, are uncommon malignancies. Immunosuppressed states, including iatrogenic immunosuppression following organ transplantation, are the most significant risk factors for developing primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL). Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) is a well described complication following bone marrow or solid organ transplantation. PTLD is usually a systemic disease with occasional CNS involvement. The incidence of CNS involvement in PTLD is low, and the majority of these cases tend to be PCNSL. Hodgkin lymphoma PTLD (HL-PTLD) constitutes only a very small percentage of PTLD. We report a rare cas..
