Clostridial infection of a liver transplant treated with retransplantation.

Journal Article

Clostridial infection of a liver transplant is reported and was treated successfully with immediate retransplantation and antibiotics. This strategy may salvage patients who otherwise have a fulminant course and certain death. This case supports the general principle that infection localized to the liver can be successfully treated with retransplantation when appropriate.
