ABSTRACT Liver transplantation has become an available and successful option for treating numerous congenital and acquired hepatic disorders. Studies have shown that when the prepregnancy recipient graft function is stable and adequate, pregnancy is normally well tolerated with favorable neonatal outcomes. However, several reports exist showing increased incidences of hypertension and preeclampsia, as well as lower birth weights, prematurity, preterm labor, anemia, diabetes, and intrauterine growth retardation. These patients should be monitored with a multidisciplinary approach to achieve optimal maternal and fetal outcomes. In this case report, pregnancy follow-up and the results of the patient who underwent liver transplantation approximately 12 months before pregnancy are discussed.
