We assessed the growth of 29 pediatric patients who had undergone OLT, with a follow-up period of 6 to 34 months (mean 13.9 months). Patients who died or had a follow-up period <6 months were excluded. Mean age at the time of transplantation was 5.8 years (range 7 months to 16 years). Sixteen patients were female. There were 14 white, seven Hispanic, five Oriental, and three black patients. Their diagnoses were biliary atresia (six patients), a-1-antitrypsin deficiency (six patients), familial cholestasis (three patients), fulminant hepatitis (two patients), idiopathic cirrhosis (two patients), and chronic active hepatitis (one patient).
