BACKGROUND Recurrent hepatitis B after liver transplantation may be complicated by fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis. This syndrome is associated with rapid graft failure and is characterized by ballooning degeneration of hepatocytes and abundant viral antigen expression. METHODS To study this disorder further, in situ hybridization studies were performed… CONTINUE READING
