Atopic dermatitis induced by systemic immunosupression with tacrolimus-case report


Type I hypersensitivity reactions have been described after solid organ transplantation despite T cell targeted immunosuppressive therapy.There are several reports of food allergy, asthma and eosinophilic colitis in pediatric transplant recipients under Tacrolimus immunosuppression, but not Cyclosporine A. We present the case of a 6 year old patient that developed de novo atopic dermatitis, eosinophilia and high levels of total IgE under systemic treatment with tacrolimus.
