Elidel, which is generically known as pimecrolimus, is a topical macrolactam innunosuppressant Calcineurin Inhibitor, which is manufactured by Novartis. In other words, it is a skin cream used to treat rosacea, eczema, and Atopic Dermatitis. Elidel is popular because it is free of steroids. The most devastating of the Elidel side effects is the possibility that it might possibly increase the risk of cancer.

Elidel skin cream is though to increase the chances of developing lymphoma and other kinds of skin cancer. Elidel has had to have a black box warning since January 2006. This warning states that Elidel has the potential to increase the risk of lymph node or skin malignancy.

As of now, there is a lot of controvery about Elidel (pimercrolimus) and the similar drug tacrolimus. Some studies claim that these Eczema drugs do increase the probability of cancer; whereas, other studies indicate that there is no causal connection. What is clear is that Elidel does lower the user's immune system and this might make the patient more susceptible to disease.

Lawyers and plaintiffs claim that Novartis did not provide sufficient warnings about the potential of Elidel to cause cancer. It is unclear as to whether or not Novartis was aware of Elidel's propensity to cause cancer.
