Abstract

Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD) are an important comorbidity in immunosuppressed transplant patients. We describe a unique case of PTLD, a disseminated peritoneal plasmacytoma in a 56-year-old cardiac transplant patient presenting with ascites. The associated computed tomographic findings include omental thickening, mesenteric stranding, and ascites.
