Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) are the most common cholestatic liver diseases (CLD) in adults. Liver transplant (LT) is desirable for those who progress to end-stage liver disease. CLD have become an uncommon indication for LT. PSC and PBC accounted for 7.1% of all adult LT in 2015. CLD have the best post-LT outcomes compared with other indications for LT. Disease recurrence of PSC and PBC after LT is reported in up to 37% and 43% of LT recipients, respectively. Although recurrent PBC does not affect post-LT outcomes, recurrent PSC is associated with worse post-LT survival.
