The perioperative management of immunocompromised patients can be successfully undertaken without increased morbidity or mortality through vigilant attention to detail and a basic understanding of the pharmacology and toxic profile of the drugs most commonly used in the management of this patient population. When complications occur, early recognition of these problems and their causes, especially consideration of drug-mediated side effects, are imperative to minimize the potential morbidity.
