Cutaneous infections from viral sources in solid organ transplant recipients

Although there is an abundance of information on cutaneous malignancies in transplant recipients, information on cutaneous infections in solid organ transplant recipients is underrepresented in dermatologic and transplant literature. Our paper provides a comprehensive review of viral cutaneous infections within the solid organ transplant population. We compiled literature specific to the solid organ transplant population, reviewing cutaneous manifestations secondary to viral infections. Furthermore, we discuss the diagnosis and treatment of such infections. The following is a list of the viruses that we will discuss: Human papillomavirus Human herpesvirus type 1,2 Varicella-Zoster virus Cytomegalovirus Epstein-Barr virus Human herpesvirus type 6 variant A Human herpesvirus type 6 variant B Human herpesvirus type 7 Human herpesvirus 8 Trichodysplasia spinulosa polyomavirus Human polyomavirus 7 Merkel cell polyomavirus Molluscum contagiosum
