Summary

The era of direct acting antivirals has revolutionised the management of chronic hepatitis C infection and improved patient outcomes. The optimal management of patients who require liver transplantation remains a matter of ongoing discussion. Treatment in the post-transplantation setting may be complicated by significant drug–drug interactions between antiviral agents and standard immune suppressive treatment regimens. We describe what we believe to be the first reported case of a patient successfully treated for CHC with ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir plus dasabuvir, while taking sirolimus following liver transplantation.
