Severe alcoholic hepatitis (SAH) is one of the most serious forms of alcoholic liver disease (ALD) associated with
high mortality, particularly in patients who are not suitable for corticosteroid (CS) treatment or in CS non-responders
as rated by the Lille model. Unfortunately, the number of these patients is increasing and there is no alternative
treatment. More recently, attention has been paid to a possibly effective method of fecal microbiota transplantation
(FMT). In our case report, we discuss the case of a young woman with severe alcoholic hepatitis, CS non-responder
with a high risk of short-term mortality. For the first time at our workplace, we used the FMT. Based on our
case report, the FMT appears to be beneficial method that improv es short-term survival in this patient population.
