ABSTRACT
The article describes the case of a 63-year-old woman who developed reversible hepatotoxicity while receiving coumarin. The patient was reportedly hospitalised with a 1-week history of jaundice, malaise, pruritus and dark coloured urine. It is said that two weeks previously, the woman had begun coumarin for chronic lymphoedema in her lower left limb. Her coumarin therapy was discontinued and her symptoms rapidly improved.
