Liver transplantation and mental retardation

H. Van Vlierberghe, I. Colle, R. Troisi, B. de Hemptinne, M. De Vos. Department of Gastroenterology and Surgery, Ghent University Hospital.

Mental retardation has been a controversial relative contraindication to organ transplantation. We present a case report of a 54 year old man with alcoholic cirrhosis and mental retardation who was sent for evaluation for liver transplantation. We discuss the ethical considerations of transplantation in the mental retarded patient.
