• The development of de novo malignant neoplasms after renal transplantation continues to be of importance. The incidence of skin cancer in the renal transplant population at the University of Minnesota Hospital is compared with that expected on the basis of rates from the special nonmelanoma part of the Third National Cancer Survey. Overall, the risk of skin cancer in the renal transplant population was 7.1 times that expected. This excess was due primarily to squamous cell carcinomas, which were 36.4 times as frequent as expected.
