- Shortly after donor marrow administration: weight gain, tenderness, edema, ascites

- Delayed complication: focal nodular hyperplasia is frequent at median 6 years posttransplant in children (Bone Marrow Transplant 2009;43:127)
- Poor outcome likely if severe liver toxicity or severe liver dysfunction
- Frequent iron overload contributes to liver dysfunction (Bone Marrow Transplant 2008;42:461, Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2004;16:157)
