ABSTRACT
The article describes the case of a 57-year-old man presented with a 1-week history of dark urine, nausea and vomiting after receiving atenolol with over-the-counter (OTC) herbal medicines. A liver biopsy revealed granulomatous hepatitis with an unusual number of eosinophils that was suggestive of drug-induced liver injury. His liver enzyme and bilirubin levels had normalised after discontinuing atenolol and replacing it with amlodipine.
