Transplant patients have unique dermatological needs, including:
- infective skin problems
- numerous precancerous lesions (actinic keratoses, Bowen's disease)
- skin cancers.
Immunosuppressant drugs used by transplant patients increase the risk of skin cancers. Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are the most common post-transplant malignancy.
Their problems are often multiple, complex and time consuming.
The Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc's Transplant Clinic is set up to manage the skin of patients who have had organ transplants.
