Liver transplantation has increasingly been accepted as the standard of care for patients with irreversible advanced liver disease. It is now widely accepted that among organ transplant patients, liver recipients have the highest rates of a broad spectrum of neuropsychiatric symptoms and syndromes before transplant, in the acute postoperative period, and during longterm clinical follow-up. In this report we present a liver transplant case with no pretransplant diagnosis of psychiatric disorder, who has his three manic epizodes during posttransplant period. Prosttransplant psychiatric follow up is important for early recognition and treatment of factors that may negatively affect a successful clinical outcome.
