By Adrià Plana-Pla, Laura Cañas Solé, Aram Boada Garcia and Ricardo Lauzurica Valdemoros


Mouth ulcers are a cutaneous complication that can often affect kidney transplant patients, mostly due to the effect of immunosuppressive treatment.Even so, before asserting that said complication is indeed secondary to drugs, it is very important to establish a differential diagnosis with other mouth ulcer causes, such as systemic diseases or viral infections, which are also common in these patients. Resumen: Las úlceras orales son una de las complicaciones cutáneas que pueden afectar con frecuencia a los pacientes trasplantados renales, debido muchas veces al efecto del tratamiento inmunosupresor.Aun así, es importante, antes de asegurar que dicha complicación es secundaria a los fármacos, establecer el diagnóstico diferencial con otras causas de úlceras orales como pueden ser enfermedades sistémicas o infecciones virales, también frecuentes en este tipo de pacientes.
