Abstract

Alcoholic patients run an increased risk of developing hepatotoxicity from doses of acetaminophen within or only moderately above the recommended usual therapeutic doses. In this review I examine the scientific evidence and clinical observations that indicate such a heightened susceptibility of the alcoholic to acetaminophen-induced injury.
