The risk of malignancy in renal transplant patient is higher compared to general population. The prolonged immunosuppression received by these patients is considered to be one of the risk factors for the development of malignancies. Majority of the malignancies are epithelial in nature and predominantly are squamous cell carcinoma. The sites where squamous cell carcinoma develops in postrenal transplant patients include skin, lip, cervix, vulva, penis, scrotum, anus, and rarely lung. Very few cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue after renal transplant have been documented in the literature. We present one such case where the patient developed squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue 16 years after renal transplant.
