Abstract

Hepatobiliary disease has been described in Bruton's x-linked agammaglobulinemia; however, veno-occlusive disease has not been reported in this setting. We report a case of end-stage liver disease in a patient with x-linked agammaglobulinemia who was found to have VOD and evidence of human herpes virus 7 infection in the explanted liver after transplantation.
