Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Develop a skill set for long-term management of skin disease in patients with solid organ transplants.
- Recognize the broad spectrum of skin disease affecting patients with solid organ transplants, including both medical and surgical problems.
- Detect, diagnose, and manage common cutaneous sequelae caused by chronic immunosuppression in solid organ transplant recipients.
There are over 200,000 people in the United States with solid organ transplants who have increasing life expectancy. These patients experience a broad variety of skin diseases related to long-term immunosuppression. This includes high-risk skin cancer development as well as medical problems including infections. This session will provide those attending with an up-to-date comprehensive examination of issues that complicate the management of these patients. In addition, there will be new insights into the specific strategies that will improve the overall care of organ transplant recipients.
