Abstract

Organ transplantation has become the treatment of choice for a growing number of terminally ill patients. The increase number of procedures increase the number of complications related to transplantation and to the immunosuppression. We report our experience in the transferral of malignancy by grafting cancerous organs into recipients, which is a rare but desastrous complication of transplantation.
