Abstract
Neurological complications occur frequently in patients undergoing liver transplantation. We report a case of multi-ple neurologic complications including central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis, seizure, and mutism after liver transplantation. Though the cause would be obscure and multifactorial, the hyponatremia with its rapid correction dur-ing operation and the side effects of the immunosuppressant would be the most probable causes in this case.
