inconclusive. Similarly, recurrence of non-A, non-B, non-C hepatitis can be extremely difficult to diagnose and these patients are often treated mistakenly for acute cellular rejection, which may initially improve liver number abnormalities, but eventually these abnormalities recur. In addition, recurrence of other diseases such as primary biliary cirrhosis, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, and to a lesser degree, primary sclerosing cholangitis and autoimmune hepatitis have been described. These disease recurrences are typically diagnosed with a combination of liver biopsy and imaging of the biliary tree. The management of recurrence in these diseases can be difficult and for the most part, they are treated much in the same way as in the native liver.
