Özet

Background/Aims: A liver transplant is the preferred treatment for patients with end-stage liver disease, as it usually results in long-term survival. However, due to the use of chronic immunosuppressive therapy, which is necessary to prevent rejection, de novo cancer is a major risk after transplantation. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of post-transplant malignancies in children after liver transplantations.
