"This communication is intended to inform the transplant community of the potential

risk caused by monkeypox to our transplant patients.

While there have been no published data on monkeypox in transplant recipients, there is an imminent threat to this immunocompromised group of patients, if the ongoing human-to-human spread continues. 

This document provides a summary of information from the literature that may be relevant to the transplant community. As more information becomes available, particularly as it relates to transplantation, this document will be updated. "
