Core Tip Active tuberculosis after solid organ transplantation, particularly after liver transplantation, has a dismal outcome. This review focuses on the burden of active tuberculosis after liver transplantation and summarizes the most recent data concerning the use of isoniazid for the treatment of latent tuberculosis infection in liver transplant recipients and candidates. In addition, we review the most relevant clinical experience in the use of fluoroquinolones as an alternative approach with a favorable safety profile for the treatment of latent tuberculosis infection in the liver transplant setting.
