  • Transmission of Rosacea from the Graft in Facial Allotransplantation

    A year ago David's blog brought to light an intriguing story that raised some interesting questions:

    Some of those questions are (beginning to be) addressed here:

    You can transmit rosacea to another person?

    This is an interesting subject. The article said the recipient (as well as another patient mentioned the article) developed rosacea 2.5 years postgraft "most likely due to excessive, long-lasting applications of clobetasol, a high-potency steroid cream known to induce rosacea." Wonder how one would separate the steroid induced rosacea from the transplant skin since probably treating with steroids is a regular feature of such procedures? Thanks for the post.
