Abstract

A case is presented of a patient who developed acute hepatitis during cholesterol-lowering treatment with atorvastatin and ezetimibe. Further investigations reveal a probable drug-induced autoimmune hepatitis, and ezetimibe is considered to be the most likely causal agent. This case is the first report of an autoimmune hepatitis associated with ezetimibe therapy.
