Idiosyncratic DILI is more likely to affect individuals with comorbidities, and to have a wide range of clinical presentations. Although antibiotics are associated with DILI, the fluoroquinolone, ciprofloxacin, is a rarely reported cause. Two cases of idiosyncratic DILI following ciprofloxacin treatment are described, including a review of the literature. CASE REPORT: Case 1: A 35-year-old man was treated with ciprofloxacin for periorbital cellulitis. On the second day of ciprofloxacin treatment, he developed abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and increased serum levels of liver transaminases, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alanine aminotransferase (ALT). Further investigations excluded infectious hepatitis, autoimmune disease, or structural liver disease. Destiny Simmons has worked as a professional health writer since 2005.

They are prescribed for the treatment of urinary tract infections, ear infections, bronchitis, bacterial meningitis, eye infections, pneumonia, traveler's diarrhea, and a number of other kinds of infections. Sulfonamides are linked to rare cases of drug-induced liver injury, which typically occurs 1-3 weeks of starting therapy. Symptoms include fever, rash, facial edema, lymphadenopathy, arthralgias, and eosinophilia, with severity varying widely. Fluconazole is used in the treatment of superficial fungal infections.

Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic used to treat a number of bacterial infections. This includes bone. bone marrow suppression, hepatitis or liver failure, and sensitivity to light. Ciprofloxacin inhibits the drug-metabolizing enzyme CYP1A2 and thereby can reduce the clearance of drugs metabolized by that enzyme. CYP1A2. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is a brand-name prescription antibiotic medication. Cipro belongs to a class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. Cipro is effective for treating infections caused by many different types of bacteria. These include bacteria that cause infections in the urinary tract, abdomen, skin, prostate, and bone, as well as other types of infections.

Doctors use the term drug-induced liver injury (DILI) to refer to any liver damage caused by drugs, whether it results in symptoms or not. The term also includes damage caused by medicinal herbs, plants, and nutritional supplements. Some medicinal herbs (parts of plants used for health benefits) contain substances that can damage the liver. The liver is a prime target for damage because it processes everything that enters the mouth and is swallowed.

These herbs include borage, comfrey, and certain Chinese herbs, such as zi cao (groomwell), kuan dong hua (coltsfoot), qian li guang (liferoot), and pei lan (Eupatorium).
