We report a case of recurrent medulloblastoma following successful pediatric double-lung transplant for chemotherapy-induced pulmonary fibrosis. The patient had an apparent 10-year malignancy-free period prior to the transplant. This case demonstrates a potential complication of lung transplantation in individuals with prior malignancies, and questions whether patients with a history of medulloblastoma are suitable candidates for lung transplantation.
