ABSTRACT The United Network for Organ Sharing recently changed its policies for liver allocation to give patients with severe hepatic failure priority due to their greater risk of morbidity and mortality. This case illustrates the benefit of transplant in critically ill patients.

Katherine Jacobson practices in transplant surgery at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. Andrew Cameron is director of liver transplantation and an associate professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins University. Alison C. Essary is director of student affairs and an associate professor in the College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University in Phoenix. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
