Few cytogenetic data are available concerning the chromosomal constitution of post-transplant lymphomas. We report two paediatric cases of trisomy 3, as a primary anomaly, in post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) associated with B immunophenotype. Using cytogenetic analysis and fluorescence in situ hybridization on chromosome preparations, we found trisomy 3 in both patients and an extra X chromosome in one. Clinical, histological and immunophenotypical data are presented. Trisomy 3 has been observed in different types of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas but it is relatively rare in B-cell lymphomas, with the exception of marginal zone lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma. To our knowledge, trisomy 3 is an uncommon cytogenetic finding in PTLD. Further cytogenetic studies of these lymphoproliferative disorders might contribute to evaluate the role of these chromosomal anomalies in the pathogenesis of this disease.
