AbstractTwo cases of liver transplantation using left lobe grafts donated by family members are reported. One patient received the graft from his elder sister and the other from her husband. The ethical considerations are different from that of parent-to-child donation, in that the elder sister was only 18 years old and had not reached the legal age of giving consent independently and, in the other case, the consent was given in an emergency situation and in the absence of successful examples in the literature. The risks and benefits of the operations and the approach of the transplant team in obtaining the consent are presented in this report.
