Drug-induced toxic hepatitis is a relatively common hepatic disease in children, and it is usually self-limiting upon cessation of the offending drugs. Antituberculous drugs are well known for inducing hepatitis. Some cases of drug-induced hepatitis with autoimmune features have been reported; in these cases, the offending drugs were usually methyldopa, nitrofurantoin, minocycline, and interferon. The authors report the first case in Korea of drug-induced autoimmune hepatitis associated with thyroiditis and multiple autoantibodies that was induced by the antituberculous drugs isoniazid and rifampin.
Key Words: Toxic hepatitis, Autoimmune thyroiditis, Isoniazid, Rifampin
