Abstract

An evaluation of the hepatic dysfunction in the post transplant period of 31 of 82 renal transplant recipients revealed three different patterns of liver disease. Two patients died in acute liver failure during an acute fulminant illness. Eight other patients suffered an acute, anicteric and completely reversible hepatic disorder. Twenty one patients have been afflicted with a chronic form of liver disease which, in a least 5, has progressed to an active cirrhosis. Infection with cytomegalovirus and other viruses is probably responsible for most of the liver disease the authors have observed in these patients, while hepatotoxicity related to therapy with azathioprine and other drugs has played only a minor role.
