Abstract

Clostridium perfringens sepsis following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is a rare but reported complication that historically results in mortality or emergent retransplantation (ReTx).1-7 Complications from C. perfringens emphysematous gastritis have contributed to the death of a healthy live liver donor as well.8 Herein, we describe the first documented survivor of C. perfringens sepsis following OLT managed without laparotomy or emergent ReTx.
