Contraindications to liver transplantation include:


HIV seropositivity
Extrahepatic malignancy (cancer somewhere other than the liver)
Active untreated extrahepatic sepsis (infection)
Advanced cardiopulmonary disease
Active alcoholism or substance abuse
Anatomic abnormalities precluding transplantation

CORRECT!
I'll say one more-uncorrectable coagulopathy(in primary biliary cirrhosis and primary sclerosing cholangitis).
