Kaposi’s sarcoma and Merkel cell carcinoma represent potentially lethal cutaneous complications in organ transplanted patients. These neoplasms can severely complicate the clinical outcome of transplanted patient. Moreover, as the diagnosis is mainly clinical, a knowledge of these clinical entities may be fundamental in the daily management of this group of patients. In this review we will discuss these neoplasms in relation to the role of immunosuppression in their onset and progression.
