Abstract

The 38 year old male patient was admitted to our clinic with jaundice and invalidating pruritus of unknown origin. The primary evaluation made by the practitioner of the patient and the initial examinations performed in the clinic revealed no diagnosis. In particular, an infectious liver disease could be excluded. Reevaluation of anamnestic data revealed then the in-take of Dianabol, an often used anabolic steroid as the most possible reason for the cholestatic hepatopathy.
