Abstract: 
Since the first liver transplantation in the early 1960s, there have been significant improvements in the recipients' long-term outcome. Patients who have undergone transplantation are exposed to a high risk of developing neoplastic disease, not only because of their chronic immunosuppression, but also related to physiological aging, lifestyle, chronic viral infections, liver disease cause, and carcinogenic immunosuppressants. The present review covers the latest and most relevant data on de novo neoplasms after liver transplantation, and discusses their implications for clinical practice.
