Abstract

A 14-year-old girl with leukemia had Doppler ultrasound evidence of hepatic necrosis, thought to be caused by a lipid formulation of amphotericin B, which has not been previously reported. It seems prudent to exert caution when retreating patients with previous hepatocellular damage with lipid formulations of amphotericin B.
