Abstract

Pulmonary relapse of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) occurred in a 10-year-old girl who presented with cough, blood-tinged sputum, and chest tightness. The diagnosis of Ki-1 (CD30) anaplastic large-cell lymphoma was established using bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and transbronchial biopsy (TBB). These procedures demonstrated malignant cells that stained positive for CD30 and had the t(2;5) translocation, thereby avoiding the need for an open lung biopsy.
