Extramedullary plasmacytoma in a post renal transplant recipient is an extremely rare type of post transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) which warrants significant reduction in immunosuppressive therapy leading to increased risk of rejections and even graft loss. We describe a 49 year old male patient who after 14 years of renal transplant presented with extramedullary plasmacytomas in pancreas, gums, subcutaneous tissue and transplant kidney. He was treated with high dose melphalan followed by rescue autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplant and concurrent reduction in immunosuppression following which he achieved complete remission maintained on 5 years of follow up with astable allograft function. This case, to best of our knowledge is first case to be successfully managed with a rescue autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplant in a renal transplant patient with multifocal extramedullary plasmacytomas.
