Pediatric Hepatology and Liver Transplantation Book Review:

This book is the first to provide balanced examination of both pediatric liver disease and liver transplantation – two topics that are inherently related, given that most chronic liver disorders eventually require organ replacement. The different forms of liver disease encountered in the pediatric age group are first discussed in a series of disease-specific chapters that have a reader-friendly, uniform structure covering pathophysiology, diagnostic and treatment algorithms, clinical cases, and transition to adult care. Key topics in the field of liver transplantation are then addressed. Examples include indications and contraindications, surgical techniques and complications, immunosuppression, in pediatric liver transplantation, acute and chronic rejection and allograft dysfunction, and CMV and EBV infection in transplant recipients, long-term graft injury and tolerance. A section on pediatric hepatology across the world includes chapters presenting the features and management of pediatric liver disease in South-America, Africa and Asia. A closing section considers what the future holds for pediatric liver disease and its management, including novel genetic testing, cell therapy and gene therapy. Pediatric Hepatology and Liver Transplantation will be of value for a range of practitioners, from residents making their first approach to pediatric liver disease through to specialists working in transplantation centers.

Pediatric Liver Transplantation Book Review:

Liver transplantation (LT) has become standard management of pediatric liver diseases that lead to acute liver failure or can progress to end-stage liver disease (ESLD). Indications for LT in pediatric patients can be classified into cholestatic disorders, metabolic liver diseases causing liver cirrhosis, metabolic liver diseases without liver cirrhosis, acute liver failure, acute and chronic hepatitis, and liver tumors. The most common indication of PLT is biliary atresia. Generally, the patient is a child with biliary atresia with several prior surgical procedures, extremely malnourished, with stigmata of fat-soluble vitamin deficiency, bleeding diathesis, uncontrolled portal hypertension and massive ascites. Before the technique of liver splitting, pediatric patients were dependent on donors with similar age or size. Partial liver grafts can be obtained either by splitting a cadaveric donor organ or by living-donor liver donation. Living donor liver recipients have a shorter waiting time. The majority of centers employ a regime of' triple therapy with prednisolone, mycophenolate and tacrolimus. LT in the pediatric setting is technically challenging due to the reduced size of the vasculature and biliary tree. Strategies for identification and mitigation of risk factors, prevention of technical complications, and protocols for early detection of vascular complications may reduce mortality, morbidity.

0918 PRIMARY INFECTION WITH HUMAN HERPES VIRUS TYPE 6 POST PEDIATRIC LIVER TRANSPLANTATION A PATHOGEN TO REMEMBER Book Review:

Background and Aims: In recent years, liver transplantation (LT) has become a well-accepted therapeutic modality for children with end stage liver disease, with transplantation surgery being performed at a younger age. Primary infection with human herpes virus 6 (HHV-6) occurs in most children within the first two years of life, therefore, data on primary HHV-6 infection in pediatric liver transplant recipients is scarce. Our objective was to describe the course of primary HHV-6 infection after pediatric LT.Methods: Medical files, between the years 2015-2016, of post-LT pediatric patients with suspected primary HHV-6 infection were reviewed. Clinical and laboratory data for enrolled cases were evaluated.Results: Four cases of primary HHV-6 (type B) infection were identified amongst the 26 children who had undergone LT at our center during the study period. All patients were
