Persistence of the intestinal defect in abetalipoproteinaemia after liver transplantation

Published inEuropean journal of pediatrics, vol. 157, no. 7, p. 576-578
Publication date1998

A 16-year-old girl is described with abetalipoproteinaemia who underwent liver transplantation for hepatic cirrhosis. After this procedure her serum lipoprotein profile was corrected; however, fat malabsorption and steatorrhea persisted because the primary defect, a mutant microsomal triglyceride-transfer protein, remains expressed in the intestine.
