Abstract

Acute hepatotoxicity has been described in patients exposed to either trichloroethylene or 1,1,1-trichloroethane, but there have been no previous reports of chronic liver disease induced by these agents. We describe a patient who developed cirrhosis and portal hypertension after repeated bouts of acute hepatotoxicity caused by trichloroethylene and a final episode of 1,1,1-trichloroethane-induced liver injury.
