Immunosuppression is a known risk factor for the development of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC). Certain medications that induce immunosuppression, such as tumor necrosis factor-? (TNF-?) inhibitors, are being used more frequently. We report a case of a young, pregnant woman who was treated with infliximab for Crohn's disease, and subsequently experienced a rapid growth of two pre-existing basal cell carcinomas. As use of TNF-? inhibitors increases, it is important to closely monitor patients for the development of NMSC. J Drugs Dermatol. 2012;11(5):655-656.
