Abstract

Liver transplantation (LT) was achieved for factor V Leiden-induced thrombophilia in a neonate with hepatic veno-occlusive disease. Initial LT was performed with a liver segment removed from a child with primary oxalosis. Four months later, a second, definitive LT was performed. The child remains well without recurrent thrombosis.
