Progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis type 3 (PFIC3) is a rare cholestatic liver disease with autosomal recessive inheritance caused by mutations in theABCB4gene. The clinical presentation of PFIC3 varies significantly, displaying incomplete penetrance without clear genotype-phenotype correlations. As such, the suitability of living-related liver donation for children with advanced disease has been questioned. We report here the long-term follow-up of a patient with PFIC3 resulting in decompensated cirrhosis at 11 years who successfully underwent living donor liver transplantation from his father, who carried the sameABCB4homozygous mutation.
