Abstract

ATT- A Double Edged Sword?

Author(s): D Gude, DP Bansal

Antitubercular therapy (ATT) induced hepatotoxicity, although well known to clinicians, is often over looked and underrated. Given the low threshold of starting ATT, especially empirically, the adverse manifestations can take a considerable toll. A variety of associated risk factors compound the morbidity. We throw light on one such a case where ATT was detrimental to the patient and review the literature and possible preventive strategies.
