Medical progress leads us to take care of new types of patients, including those who have been liver transplanted. In fact, the number of these patients is constantly increasing, hence the probability of meeting them in the dental office is increasing. These patients require specific, personalized and rigorous dental management, due to the infectious risk and therapeutic risk associated with immunosuppressive medication, along with specific side effects of immunosuppressants. Other oral manifestations associated with the previous liver disease, have been reported. The aim of this paper was to describe the oral findings in liver transplanted children through two cases.
