Abstract

Surgery was performed on day 43 for biliary atresia. Left lobectomy with preservation of Roux-en-y cholecystojejunostomy was performed for refractory cholangitis after 25 years. Our case is currently awaiting liver transplantation. This is the second report of liver resection in a long-term biliary atresia survivor in the English literature.

Key words: Biliary atresia, lobectomy, long-term survivor
