          Abstract

          We present a review of the current literature on skin diseases in renal transplant recipients (RTR) and the results of a 5-year follow-up of 285 patients. Many skin diseases are only an aesthetic and functional cause for interest, but HPV infections and skin cancers are significantly more frequent in RTR than in immunocompetent subjects and can affect a patient’s prognosis. For this reason, we feel dermatological surveillance of RTR is necessary for early diagnosis and treatment of all high-risk lesions.
