Case Study
The article describes the case of a 7-year-old man who developed severe hepatotoxicity, characterised by hyperbilirubinaemia, after receiving lenalidomide for stage IIIB multiple myeloma.

He had significant fatigue and hyperbilirubinaemia following treatment with oral lenalidomide, dexamethasone, prophylactic warfarin and aspirin for venous thromboembolism.
