T-cell lymphomas, particularly NK/T-cell lymphomas are rare post transplantation malignancies. Only a few cases have been described. These tumors behave aggressively and the outcome is poor. We present here a case of NK/T-cell lymphoma who presented to us with an orbital swelling 9 years after renal transplantation, along with the review of literature. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of NK/T-cell lymphoma post-renal transplantation reported from India.
