抄録

Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is the most serious central nervous system complication that could be seen after liver transplantation and represents an important source of mortality early after liver transplantation. CPM following liver transplantation was reported more and more in literatures, but the true incidence of CPM after living related liver transplantation (LDLT) remains unknown. However, with the introduction of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), early recognition has become possible. In this report, we present a case of rapid resolution of CPM followed by MRI examinations.
