Renal transplant recipients (RTRs) are susceptible to many cutaneous disorders, including drug-induced skin changes. Hypertrichosis, sebaceous hyperplasia and gingival hyperplasia are well-recognized effects of ciclosporin, one of the immunosuppressants commonly used in RTRs. Pseudofolliculitis barbae usually affects hair-bearing areas of skin in men with darkly pigmented skin who shave on a regular basis. We describe five cases of hyperplastic pseudofolliculitis occurring in white RTRs taking ciclosporin as part of their immunosuppressive regimen. All five had involvement of the chin, the classic site of pseudofolliculitis barbae, and two had additional psuedofolliculitis of the nose or occiput.
