Abstract

The patient was a 44-year-old woman who was diagnosed with Budd-Chiari syndrome at the age of 24. As the liver cirrhosis progressed, she was registered for deceased donor liver transplantation at the age of 34. Since the liver function became worse 11 years after the registration, she was re-registered at a higher rank on the waiting list. Fortunately, she could undergo deceased donor liver transplantation one month after the re-registration. She is now alive in good condition one year after the transplantation. Compared with western countries, the waiting period for transplantation is very long in Japan. The shortage of brain-dead donor is the root cause for it and a serious problem for organ transplantation in our country.
