Formatted abstract
Organ transplants save lives, but the risks of adverse health outcomes remain high. Robbins et al. (2015) report the findings of a record-linkage study that followed almost 140,000 organ transplant recipients (OTRs) for melanoma. They found higher risk of incident melanoma among OTRs and markedly increased lethality. Education and surveillance are key to mitigating these effects.
