2 cases of cholestatic hepatitis due to preajmaline recovered when the drug was stopped. One was a 40-year-old woman, and the other a 74-year-old man whose jaundice lasted for 8 months. Approximately 40 patients with preajmaline-induced hepatitis have been described in the literature. All recovered except 1, who developed biliary cirrhosis while using preajmaline in conjunction with other hepatotoxic drugs.
