Core Tip There are few reports available on ileal ulcers caused by immunosuppressants. Herein, we report a liver transplant recipient and a renal transplant recipient who had multiple large ulcers in the distal ileum and ileocecal valve. Ulcers rapidly healed after withdrawal of sirolimus or tacrolimus and administration of thalidomide. No lymphoma, tuberculosis, or infection of cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, or fungus was found in either patient. There was no recurrence of ulcers or organ rejection. In some post-transplantation cases with ileal ulcers, sirolimus or tacrolimus should be considered as a risk factor because of their inhibitory effects on wound healing. Withdrawing them or switching to other immunosuppressants might be effective.
