Abstract

As long-term graft survival and mortality after liver transplantation improve, recognition that allografts may be affected by the same disease process that resulted in the failure of the liver is of both clinical and academic importance. Recipients need to be counseled about recurrence and potential impact on graft function and graft survival; clinicians need to be aware of the potential of recurrence to interpret the clinical, laboratory, radiologic, and histologic findings and alter management. Understanding which conditions recur in the allograft and factors associated with recurrence may shed light on pathogenesis. This article discusses the recurrence of nonviral diseases after liver transplantation, diagnosis, and management.
