The impact of hepatitis E in the liver transplant setting
from Journal of Hepatology
Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection has been identified as a cause of graft hepatitis in liver transplant recipients. The true frequency and clinical importance of HEV infections after liver transplantations is a matter of debate. It is proposed that consumption of HEV-contaminated undercooked meat is a main source for HEV infections in developed countries — which might also account for some hepatitis E cases after organ transplantation.
