Abstract

Operational tolerance after liver transplantation has been described in around 20% of the recipients. These patients are able to maintain a normal graft function in the absence of immunosuppressive drugs, thus being free of adverse effects that are common and frequently severe. Here we present a well-documented case of operational tolerance after liver transplantation and discuss current concepts on this topic with emphasis on recent findings that will potentially allow for identifying graft-tolerant patients.
