Covid-19 is a new contagious viral pneumonia with various signs and symptoms including, loss of consciousness, liver injury, and cerebrovascular accident, however, there are little data about manifestation and outcome of COVID-19 in the liver transplant patients. Also, according to the closing of transplant units in Iran from the first day of the COVID-19 pandemic, we don’t have accurate data about nosocomial COVID-19 and liver transplant settings. In this article, we introduced a liver transplant recipient with final fatal outcome, who have had neurological manifestation. and also COVID-19 manifestations were started within 2 days after transplant surgery in the hospital.
