A girl with extensive Hirschsprung's disease was operated, leaving her with a 35 cm short bowel. She received long-term parenteral nutrition through a central catheter. Progressive liver failure and intravenous access problems developed and at the age of 5.5 years she was transplanted in Birmingham with 270 cm small bowel, a reduced liver and pancreas. After the transplantation she received immunosuppressive medication, ursodeoxycholic acid and antibiotic prophylaxis. She is now well and on enteral nutrition, 32 months after the transplantation.
