Abstract

Cancer is a major cause of morbidity among those with kidney transplants. Farrugia et al. examined the overall and site-specific risk of cancer death among kidney transplant recipients. Cancer outcomes, particularly for those with a history of cancer prior to transplantation, are poor. The overall risk of death attributed to cancer in patients with kidney transplants is increased at least tenfold over that in cancer patients in the general population.
