Treatment and outcomes in classic Hodgkin lymphoma post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder in children. Pediatric blood & cancer Twist, C. J., Hiniker, S. M., Gratzinger, D., Gutkin, P. M., Merriott, D. J., Iagaru, A., Link, M. P., Donaldson, S. S. 2019: e27803


Classic Hodgkin lymphoma post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (HL-PTLD) has been rarely reported in children, with limited data available to guide treatment decisions. We report a retrospective review of five children diagnosed with classic HL-PTLD following solid organ transplant between 2007 and 2013 at Stanford University. Patients were treated with Stanford V chemotherapy and involved field radiation therapy. With a median follow-up of 7.2 years (range, 4.7-10.5 years) since diagnosis, all patients remain in remission from HL-PTLD and free from graft failure. In this series, combined modality therapy with risk-adapted chemotherapy and radiation therapy was a successful strategy for the treatment of classic HL-PTLD.
