The author presents a case of diffuse alveolar hemorrhage in a woman consuming Ginkgo biloba extract and ginseng. The patient had no illnesses or exposures that would predispose to diffuse alveolar hemorrhage, and an extensive evaluation revealed no etiology. The patient has had no further bleeding since discontinuing Ginkgo biloba extract and ginseng 1 year ago. 
Review of Ginkgo biloba-induced toxicity, from experimental studies to human case reports
ABSTRACT Ginkgo biloba seeds and leaves have been used as a traditional herbal remedy for thousands of years, and its leaf extract has been consumed as a botanical dietary supplement for decades.Expand

TLDR
Current and past drug intake is essential in the evaluation of a patient who has DAH, and depending on the severity of the drug withdrawl, will not be adequate and corticosteroid therapy is recommended. Expand
Spontaneous bleeding associated with Ginkgo biloba
TLDR
A structured assessment of published case reports suggests a possible causal association between using ginkgo and bleeding events, given the widespread use of this herb and the serious nature of the reported events. Expand

TLDR
Control studies consistently indicate that Ginkgo does not significantly impact haemostasis nor adversely affect the safety of coadministered aspirin or warfarin, and there is scant information from case reports or controlled trials to support the suggestion that Ginkinggo potentiates the effects of anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs. Expand
Risk of hemorrhage associated with co-prescriptions for Ginkgo biloba and antiplatelet or anticoagulant drugs.
TLDR
Although the combination of G. biloba extract with antiplatelet or anticoagulants showed insignificant correlation to the risk of hemorrhage, patients using ginkgo, particularly those with known bleeding risks and elderly, should take a particular attention to the possibility of increasing risk of bleeding. Expand
Effect of the ingestion of Ginkgo biloba extract on platelet aggregation and urinary prostanoid excretion in healthy and Type 2 diabetic subjects.
TLDR
G. biloba-induced reduction of both classes of prostanoid metabolites in healthy volunteers, but not in T2DM subjects, may suggest a nonselective inhibition ofCOX-1-mediated TXA(2) in platelets and COX-2-mediated PGI(1alpha) production by the endothelial cells and perhaps platelet-enriched levels of arachidonic acid or COx-1 activity, or both, in T1DM subjects. Expand
Ginkgo biloba for cognitive impairment and dementia.
TLDR
The CGI scale, measuring clinical global improvement as assessed by the physician, was dichotomized between participants who showed improvement and those who were unchanged or worse and there were no significant differences between Ginkgo and placebo in the proportion of participants experiencing adverse events.

  • 2002
TLDR
This article provides riskbenefit profiles for the most commonly used herbal medicines, based on systematic reviews of randomized clinical trials in humans, which suggest that ginkgo has antiedemic, antihypoxic, free radical-scavenging, antioxidant, metabolic, antiplatelet, hemorheologic, and microcirculatory actions. Expand
Antiplatelet actions of panaxynol and ginsenosides isolated from ginseng.
TLDR
It is concluded that panaxynol is the most potent antiplatelet agent in ginseng and its mechanism of action is chiefly due to the inhibition of thromboxane formation. Expand
Ginseng for cognition.
TLDR
There is a lack of convincing evidence to show a cognitive enhancing effect of Panax ginseng in healthy participants and no high quality evidence about its efficacy in patients with dementia. Expand
