Rights and Permissions

Mismatching for HLA antigens in renal transplant recipients effects the graft survival and may also be responsible for the development of malignancy including skin cancer due to the intensive immunosuppression, continuous antigenic stimulation or both. In this article, available data are reviewed and an attempt is made to show that some specific immunologic and immuno-genetic factors like the HLA system also play a role in the development of skin cancer in renal transplant recipients.
