Extramedullary recurrences with or without bone marrow involvement are reported in up to a half of leukemic relapses after bone marrow transplantation. Extramedullary relapse of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in the kidney after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) is rare. We herein, report an additional case with extramedullary recurrences and renal relapse after first-allografting for Ph+-acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He had no evidence of leukemia in his marrow demonstrating 98% full-donor chimerism while he had ALL relapse in his kidney.
