abstract

  • The use of immunosuppressive agents in dermatology has increased widely. The role of these medications has become increasingly important for the treatment of dermatologic disorders in an inpatient setting, where there is frequently a requirement for highly potent, fast-acting, effective agents. This article presents an overview of the general application, mechanisms of action, metabolism, and adverse effects commonly associated with systemic immunosuppressive agents used in dermatology.
