Abstract

A gastric bezoar complicated the postoperative course of three children following successful hepatic transplantation. Two patients had evidence of extremely erratic absorption of the cyclosporine (CSA) used for im-munosuppression. Gastric bezoars usually occur in patients with gastric dysmotility and/or patients ingesting poorly digestible material. Although several factors may contribute to bezoar formation after hepatic transplantation, a major predisposing factor may be the administration of the large quantities of olive oil required for solubilization of CSA.
