Abstract: Liver transplantation (LT) after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy in patients with unresectable hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HC) is an accepted treatment strategy [1]. Neoadjuvant therapy is associated with an increased risk of arterial and portal complications after LT [1,2]. In most cases, radiation therapy makes the use of the native hepatic artery inadvisable, and an aortic anastomosis is needed, either with or without a graft [2]. The development of a mycotic pseudoaneurysm after LT is a rare complication that is associated with a high incidence of graft failure and mortality. Radiotherapy, local infections and the use of grafts are known risk factors for the development of a mycotic pseudoaneurysm, which is always challenging to manage [3].
