RUIZ-CLAVIJO, D. et al. Azathioprine-induced hepatotoxicity in a patient with Crohn´s disease. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2013, vol.36, n.2, pp.353-356. ISSN 1137-6627.

Immunosuppressive drugs are among the pharmacological groups with the most theoretical potential to induce adverse reactions, including hepatic reactions. We report the case of a 35-year-old patient with Crohn´s disease treated with azathioprine for steroid dependence which, after a hepatic biopsy, was diagnosed with nodular regenerative hyperplasia secondary to this treatment.

Keywords : Crohn´s Disease; Azathioprine; Hepatotoxicity; Nodular regenerative hiperplasia; Portal hipertension.
