Description 1 online resource (364 pages)
Summary Skin disease is a serious long-term problem for the recipients of solid organ transplants. The potent systemic immunosuppression therapy necessary to sustain a life-saving solid organ transplant is associated with many adverse cutaneous effects, including significantly increased rates of cutaneous malignancies, difficult-to-treat cutaneous infections, and cutaneous adverse manifestations of multiple medications. This book is the first scholarly compilation of the knowledge base surrounding the care of solid organ transplant recipients with dermatologic diseases. Supplemented with dozens of full-color photographs, this work brings together decades of knowledge into a cohesive format and establishes transplant dermatology as an important subspecialty within the field of dermatology and transplant medicine. Skin Disease in Organ Transplantation is an outstanding resource for transplant providers and dermatologists to determine the optimal diagnostic and therapeutic approach to the difficult problems of cutaneous disease in organ transplant recipients
