Rise of liver enzymes e.g. LDH and SGPT arc common in a regimen containing Rifampicin, Pyrazinamide and Ethambutol. Inspite of significant abnormal rise, the regimen was continued. The patients tolerated it well, and the values came to normal. Those who develop clinical jaundice have other contributory factors which make the liver more susceptible to damage. Malnutrition and chronic hypoxia appear to be more important factors in precipitating damage to the liver.
