[en] The authors describe the case of a 17-year-old girl who suffered from end-stage liver failure due to chronic autoimmune hepatitis. Liver failure was complicated by severe portal hypertension, hypersplenism and refractory ascites. Liver transplantation was indicated. She was listed for cadaveric whole liver transplantation, but her infrequent blood group (B) increased waiting time. Her condition deteriorated to Child C liver failure and living related liver transplant was considered. Her father was compatible and proposed himself for donation. Right lobe procurement was decided in order to provide sufficient liver mass. No transfusion of red cells, platelets, or fresh frozen plasma was used either in the donor or the recipient. Both recipient and donor left the ward at postoperative day 14, without complication. They were both asymptomatic and with normal liver tests at one year follow-up. Living related liver transplantation using the right lobe may offer an alternative to liver transplant candidates in this period of organ donor shortage.
