Patients who undergo solid organ transplantation are at an increased risk of developing atopic dermatitis, potentially due to long-term use of calcineurin inhibitors which results in a shift towards the Th2 immune response. The effectiveness and safety of dupilumab for atopic dermatitis in posttransplant patients is not established. Previous reports of dupilumab use in posttransplant patients have been in adult patients. In this series, we report three young posttransplant patients treated successfully with dupilumab.
