Several reports have shown the effectiveness of liver transplantation (LT) as a therapeutic option in HIV-patients affected by end-stage liver disease. HCC on cirrhosis is another major indication for LT. However, no reports, to our knowledge, have been published as yet addressing the important questions of indications and outcome of LT in HIV-patients with HCC, mainly because of concerns regarding a more aggressive course of HCC with respect to HCC seen in HIV-negative individuals.

Abstract

Several reports have shown the effectiveness of liver transplantation (LT) as a therapeutic option in HIV-patients affected by end-stage liver disease. HCC on cirrhosis is another major indication for LT. However, no reports, to our knowledge, have been published as yet addressing the important questions of indications and outcome of LT in HIV-patients with HCC, mainly because of concerns regarding a more aggressive course of HCC with respect to HCC seen in HIV-negative individuals.
