EBV is associated with various malignancies in patients with acquired or induced immune impairment. EBV-SMT is very uncommon in immunocompromised patients, and a kidney localization has been described only anecdotally. We report the case of a 17-yr-old kidney transplant recipient diagnosed as having an EBV-SMT inside the renal graft, which was successfully managed by minimizing isolated immunosuppression.
