Nifedipine, a calcium channel blocker, is becoming increasingly popular as a tocolytic medication. Previous reports of hepatitis associated with nifedipine in the medical literature have been published. We present the first case reported of a patient with preterm labor treated with nifedipine who had development of a concurrent elevation in serum liver enzyme levels.
