Author information

Department of Medicine, University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Richland Memorial Hospital, Columbia, USA.


A 34-yr-old woman developed simultaneous pancreatitis and hepatitis following exposure to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX). The episode occurred 4 yr after a previous episode of hepatitis associated with TMP/SMX. This patient represents the second case of concurrent TMP/SMX-induced pancreatitis and hepatitis reported in the literature. However, it is the first in which the adverse reaction was documented following an inadvertent rechallenge with the drug.
