We report a 5-year-old girl with congenital hepatic fibrosis who presented with clubbing and cyanosis. Partial pressure of oxygen was 40 mmHg with oxy-gen saturation of 70% on room air, which improved to 128 mmHg and 92% on inhalation of 100% oxygen. Macroaggregated albumin scan showed 58% shunting to the brain, suggestive of severe hepatopulmonary… (More)
