Pneumatosis intestinalis following pediatric live-related liver transplant: A case report and successful conservative approach

Authors


Abstract

PI has been rarely reported following pediatric live-related liver transplantation. Such a disorder is characterized by accumulation of gas in the bowel wall. The cause of PI has not been yet established; however, it has been strongly linked with steroid therapy. In this report, we present a case of PI following pediatric live-related liver transplantation that has been successfully managed conservatively.
