In 1978, Walcott and coworkers documented the first pregnancy in a liver transplant recipient [1]. The recipient’s immunosuppressive regimen included prednisone and azathioprine. Her pregnancy was uncomplicated, and she delivered a healthy male, weighing 2400 g, at term. Since Walcott’s report, there have been hundreds of pregnancies reported worldwide in liver transplant recipients. Whether the transplant could take in an adverse effect of the pregnancy or whether the pregnancy could potentiate liver transplant it is not settled [2].
