Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A 56-year-old female patient on verapamil for hypertension experienced two episodes of jaundice, pruritus and upper abdominal pain with transaminase elevated up to six-fold and alkaline phosphatase up to four-fold when inadvertently re-challenged with the drug. Liver biopsy showed marked cholestasis. Verapamil can occasionally cause mixed cytotoxic-cholestatic liver injury.
