Abstract

The role of corticosteroid therapy in addition to anti-tuberculous agents in the treatment of hepatic tuberculosis is unclear. We describe a 54-y-old female with hepatic tuberculosis and worsening hepatitis after initiation of anti-tuberculosis therapy. She experienced considerable clinical improvement and ultimately a complete recovery upon the receipt of adjunctive corticosteroids.
