Abstract

Despite the increasing success of transplantation, graft recipients experience a high burden of musculoskeletal symptoms that may hinder quality of life. Post-transplant musculoskeletal problems may result from sequelae of the organ dysfunction that indicated the transplant or from the subsequent anti-rejection therapy. Rheumatology consultants need to be familiar with the spectrum of musculoskeletal syndromes presenting in these unique patients and their appropriate treatment in the context of complex drug regimens and immunosuppression.
