INTRODUCTION
A previous study has shown that liver or combined liver-kidney transplantation can be a valuable surgical technique for the treatment of polycystic liver disease[1]. Here, we present the case of a 35-year-old woman with polycystic liver disease, who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) onNovember 11, 2008.

CASE REPORT Abstract
A previous study has shown that liver or combined liver-kidney transplantation can be a valuable surgical technique for the treatment of polycystic liver disease. Herein, we present the case of a 35-year-old woman with polycystic liver disease, who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) on November 11, 2008. The whole-size graft was taken from adeceased donor (a 51-year-old man who died of a heart attack). Resection in a patient with massive hepatomegaly is very difficult. Thus, after intercepting the portal hepatic vein, left hepatectomy was performed, then the vena cava was intercepted, the second and third porta hepatic isolated, and finally, right hepatectomy was performed. OLT was performed successfully. The recipient did wellafter transplantation. This case suggested that OLT is an effective therapeutic option for polycystic liver disease and left hepatectomy can be performed first during OLT if the liver is over enlarged.
