Abstract

A 64-year-old male renal transplant recipient developed rectal bleeding caused by a primary lymphoma of the colon, an unusual site for initial disease involvement. Renal transplant recipients may be at increased risk for the development of primary colonic lymphoma, a diagnosis that should be considered in transplant patients who develop abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, or intestinal perforation. The unique clinical features and special management considerations of colonic lymphoma in the renal transplant recipient are discussed.
