Skin Infections

One main consequence of life-long immunosuppression necessary in transplant recipients is a reduced immunity, which increases the risk of infection. Infections in organ transplant recipients can be of bacterial, fungal, or viral origin. They might be transferred with the transplanted organ, or be a consequence of the immunosuppressive treatment causing the transplant recipients to be more susceptible to infections from their surroundings or from quiet infections their own bodies are harboring.
