Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is performed for benign hepatic lesions that are symptomatic, too large to be resected, have a malignant transformation potential, cause debilitating/life-threatening manifestations, or in patients experiencing posthepatectomy acute liver failure. Among benign tumors, polycystic liver disease (PLD) is the most common indication for OLT alone, or combined liver-kidney transplantation. Our 10-year experience with OLT for benign tumors includes two patients with PLD and one with a benign giant fibrous tumor. In this report, we present our experience with OLT for benign liver tumors, commenting on relevant published studies.
