Abstract
Fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis (FCH) is the most devastating manifestation of recurrent hepatitis C in transplant recipients with hepatitis C virus (HCV), possibly leading to death or retransplantation. Although FCH was first described as a complication of hepatitis B, this manifestation has been well documented in association with HCV in the setting of liver transplantation, bone marrow transplantation, heart transplantation, and end-stage human immunodeficiency virus infection. We report the clinical course and antiviral response in a patient with FCH due to recurrent hepatitis C after cadaveric liver transplantation who was treated with pegylated interferon α-2a and ribavirin.
