This free case-based activity includes discussion of a 71 year old Caucasian male who had a renal transplant in 1985 for renal failure secondary to glomerulonephritis. For years he maintained on azathioprine immunosuppression and in 2006 he began developing skin cancers both squamous cell and basal cell carcinomas. Along with the patient case, there is a discussion board on ASCO Connection, where users can post comments/questions to each other and to the faculty. At the end of this course you should be able to:
- Apply principles of dermatologic management and follow-up of patients with transplant-related cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC)
- Evaluate the options for immune suppressant modulation of high risk transplant-related cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC)
- Apply management principles of regional and distantly metastatic transplant-related CSCC
