Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 47 year old kidney transplant recipient who died from liver failure caused by hemochromatosis, is described. The diagnosis was established by post mortem examination. The question whether these findings are an extreme form of the common pathological changes seen in the liver in other transplant recipients, or were related to infectious hepatitis or were due to the use of immunosuppressive therapy, remains unanswered.
