Hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a rare but debilitating complication of CVID-associated liver disease. We report a case of CVID complicated by HPS that was successfully treated with orthotopic liver transplant, with the patient recovering to normal hepatic function and successfully weaning off domiciliary oxygen post-transplantation.||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/20625||DOI:||10.1136/bcr-2018-226095||PubMed URL:||30948390||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||immunology
