Objectives: A case of 15 years old boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and cochlear implant is presented. Methods: Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation with total body irradiation-based conditioning was performed. Results: No impairment of implant function nor other complications were observed. The patient is doing well over 20 months following bone marrow transplantation. Conclusions: Total body irradiation can be used in conditioning before bone marrow transplantation in patients with cochlear implants.
