Although renal transplantation has been performed for over 35 years, the heart, bone marrow, lung, liver, and pancreas have been successfully allografted with increasing frequency. With the burgeoning field of organ transplantation, skin disorders related to this procedure have become more common. Textbooks that contribute to our ability as dermatologists to diagnose and treat these patients would be welcome. However, because this book is a compilation of the experience of both dermatologists and nephrologists in Lyons, France, and is divided into 26 disjointed chapters with varying syntax, it fails to delve into the depth required to make it a significant contribution to the dermatologic armamentarium.
