Pediatr Transplant. 2007 Dec;11(8):825-34. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-3046.2007.00792.x.


Infants with cholestatic liver disease are at risk of various nutritional deficiencies. They require regular review with appropriate interventions to prevent complications and ensure optimum possible status if liver transplantation becomes necessary. We propose evidence based and internationally agreed guidelines for their care with recommendations for therapeutic strategies and for service organization.
