Author information

Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, School of Medicine, Ankara University, Ankara, Turkey.


An 11-yr-old boy with familial YNS and FHF and who underwent LRLT is presented. LRLT was performed from his father with YNS. The findings of hepatic failure resolved immediately after LRLT, but severe respiratory complications and chylous ascites were observed during the follow-up. At 12 months after successful LT, the patient has good graft function, but findings of YNS including chronic cough, lymphedema and yellow nails are still present. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of YNS who underwent LRLT for FHF.
