Liver transplant recipient with respiratory failure due to pulmonary fibrosis related to telomere disease requiring lung transplantation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Short telomere syndrome (STS) is characterized as multiorgan dysfunction presenting with unexplained cytopenias, cryptogenic cirrhosis and pulmonary fibrosis. We present a liver transplant recipient that gradually developed hypoxic respiratory failure attributed to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis associated telomere disease that culminated in a successful single lung transplantation.
