Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections worldwide and causes anal cancer. The incidence of HPV infections in renal transplant recipients is 17% to 45%. Using immunosuppression treatment has been associated with significantly lower risks of de novo malignancies and viral infections after kidney transplantation. We reported the results of switching Tacrolimus to Sirolimus in a kidney transplant recipient who suffered from severe cutaneous warts.
