Core Tip

Core Tip: Sinusoidal obstructive syndrome (SOS) is a complex entity with incompletely defined pathogenesis. It is also an uncommon complication after liver transplantation. We reported a rare case of SOS that recurred twice in liver allografts. We believed that this condition is uncommon and has rarely been reported in liver transplant recipients.
