The authors report on six pediatric liver transplant recipients for whom allograft tolerance occurred shortly after transplantation (ie, less than 1.5 years). All the patients had associated life-threatening viral complications. They are currently immmunocompetent. The tolerant state may be related to the development of a TH2 cytokine pattern.
