Treating Psoriasis in patients who have solid organ transplants
What is it about?
Patients who have organ transplants are immunosuppressed from the medications needed to prevent rejection of the transplnted organ. These medications can increase the risk of infections or malignancies. Due to these risks choosing a treatment for psoriasis can be difficult.
Why is it important?
As there is very little information on treating psoriasis in patients with organ transplants, we give guidelines based on expert opinions from the National Psoriasis Foundation Medical Board.
