Abstract

We report a case of a 62-year-old woman who received a liver transplant 19 years previously for end-stage liver disease due to hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia and fibropolycystic liver disease. During long-term follow-up 8 years after the liver transplant, de novo vascular lesions were detected with magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance angiography. Hepatic vascular lesions had slowly progressed, despite no symptoms. To our knowledge, there are few reports in the English literature of de novo vascular lesions after liver transplant in patients with hepatic telangiectasias.
