Nearly every drug can elicit some form of hepatic injury through assorted genetic mechanisms. Early recognition of drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is essential if the offending agent is to be withdrawn before permanent hepatic damage occurs. This article provides an overview of DILI-its frequency, mechanism of action, types of injury, risk factors, diagnosis, and treatment.
