A 22-year-old female was admitted for sustained high fever and diagnosed with systemic Epstein-Barr virus-positive T-cell lymphoproliferative disease. As her clinical course was so aggressive, she immediately underwent allogeneic myeloablative bone marrow transplantation from an HLA-mismatched sibling donor on hospital day 46. The patient has remained in complete remission for 3years.
