A 10-year-old girl has experienced 3 recurrences of hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) after a liver transplantation. She responded to intraarterial administrations of urokinase after the first 2 attacks. However, the restoration of the arterial flow was not possible after the third attack. The child and her father were both heterozygous for factor V Leiden mutation. In addition to the technical factors, the factor V Leiden mutation should be considered as a factor that plays a role in HAT. Copyright (C) 2000 by W.B. Saunders Company.
