Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) can occur in patients maintained on immunosuppressive therapy following transplantation. This paper describes two cases of PTLD occurring in gingival tissues, in patients receiving ciclosporin following cardiac transplantation.Treatment
The lesions were localised to gingival tissues, mimicking ciclosporin-induced gingival overgrowth. They were removed surgically and the ciclosporin dose reduced to help prevent recurrence.Conclusion
The importance of histopathological examination of all tissue removed during routine gingivectomy procedures for ciclosporin-induced gingival overgrowth is highlighted.
