Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is the second most common malignancy in adults and most common malignancy in children, following transplantation. Ascertaining the cause of PTLD requires an extensive clinical and diagnostic workup. Here, we report a case of postrenal transplant recipient presenting with the features of fever, pain abdomen, and breathlessness. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography which was done showed increased FDG uptake in axillary, mediastina, abdominal lymphadenopathy, soft tissue, and muscle deposits.
