Cellular rejection is a common event in orthotopic liver transplantation, leading to significant morbidity and mortality. Late acute cellular rejection, which occurs at least 3 months post-transplant, affects 8-32% of pediatric liver transplant recipients. The histopathology and clinical outcome of patients affected by late cellular rejection are incompletely understood. The aims of this study were 1) to characterize late cellular rejection in the pediatric liver transplant population and… CONTINUE READING
