Abstract/Summary The aim of this article is to identify the current challenges in pediatric OLT. It is directed to all physicians who care for pediatric patients from the early prospect of liver transplant to posttransplant life. Besides assessing current information on transplant results, the coauthors of this article have identified a number of issues that they consider as the most important that need to be addressed in 2008. Some are only an update of old questions, and others are newly identified problems. The recommendations from the group are summarized at the end of each specific issue and in the consensus guidelines.
