    Abstract

    A 37 year old female with rheumatoid arthritis developed clinical and biochemical evidence of hepatitis after receiving 80 mg of sodium aurothiomalate. Inadvertent rechallenge with sodium aurothiomalate led to recurrence of the biochemical abnormalities and a profound neutropenia and eosinophilia.
