VETTORATO, Gérson et al. Frequency of infectious dermatosis in 208 renal transplant recipients. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.3, pp.283-288. ISSN 1806-4841.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962003000300004.

BACKGROUND: Chronic immunosuppressive therapy predisposes renal transplant recipients to a heightened susceptibility to infectious dermatoses. OBJECTIVES: evaluate the frequency of infectious dermatoses in 208 renal transplant recipients over a 12-month period and verify the relation between the onset of dermatoses and the time elapsed since transplantation. METHOD: 208 renal transplant recipients, taken from a population of 720 transplant recipients, received a dermatological examination for a year. Dermatopathological examination, mycological examination, bacteriologic examination, and cultures were taken from suspected lesions. RESULTS: the prevalence of infectious dermatosis was 89.4% in this population. The more frequent fungal, viral and bacterial infections were respectively pitiyriasis versicolor (17.8%), warts (32.2%), and folliculitis (4.3%). CONCLUSION: infectious dermatoses are common in renal transplant recipients. Their occurrence is progressively higher as time passes after the transplantation, therefore making the frequent dermatological examination of these recipients very important.
