The present paper describes the first reported successful use of a single session of percutaneous alcohol sclerotherapy for the treatment of an excluded segmental biliary duct in a five-month-old left lateral liver recipient. A concomitant stricture of the hepaticojejunostomy was also successfully treated using standard percutaneous balloon dilatation. The patient has remained in good general condition for the next 26 months.
