Abstract

This report describes two subsequent liver-small bowel-pancreas-kidney (multivisceral) transplantations in a child colonized with multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We discuss the dilemma concerning the transplantation of patients colonized with multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas spp., its potential consequences, and the peri and postoperative management of these patients.
