Pruritus of pregnancy and jaundice induced by oral contraceptives.


This article presents a young girl who developed jaundice while on oral contraceptives. A most significant feature in this particular patient's history was the severe pruritus she developed during a previous gestation. This combination of events should alert physicians to the possible diagnosis. Oral contraceptives should be prescribed to such a patient with great caution.
