Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder presented as small bowel intussusception in adult liver transplant patient.
Repository Usage Stats
Intestinal obstruction after liver transplant is a rare complication, with diverse clinical manifestations. Intestinal adhesion is the most common cause. However, internal hernia, abdominal wall hernia, and neoplasm are also reported. Intussusception is another rare cause of intestinal obstruction, which has been reported primarily in pediatric patients. Herein, we report a case of intestinal obstruction from intussusception in an adult liver transplant patient associated with post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder.

I am convinced that caring for patients with malignant hematologic diseases requires not only up-to-date medical knowledge, but also an understanding of the individual patient's needs and circumstances. I encourage patients to take an active role in their treatment and recovery and I work with them to develop an individualized treatment plan that includes the most advanced therapies available today. My practice focuses primarily on disorders of the lymphatic system (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia). As an integral part of my clinical activities, I am dedicated to teaching young physicians at all levels of training and educating the next generation of hematologists.
