Clopidogrel-induced hepatotoxicity.


F ollowing elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a 56-year-old man received clopidogrel 75 mg OD along with his long-term medication (> five years treatment with aspirin 75 mg OD and simvastatin 40 mg OD). Pre-PCI, his liver biochemistry (LFT’s) was normal. Two months post PCI the patient complained of general malaise and was found to have deranged LFT’s [Figure 1]. There was no history of alcohol abuse.
