Multi-Visceral Transplantation in a 21-Year-Old Man with Prior Pancreatoblastoma

R Girlanda, A Pozzi, CS Matsumoto, TM Fishbein

Abstract


Organ transplantation in patients with prior malignancy increases the risk of tumor recurrence post-transplantation due to immunosuppression. Only two cases of liver transplantation have so far been reported in children with hepatic metastases from pancreatoblastoma, a rare malignant neoplasm originating from the epithelial exocrine cells of the pancreas. Herein, we describe a case of a successful multi-visceral transplant in a man with intestinal failure after surgical resection of pancreatoblastoma.
