Amiodarone hepatotoxicity

Amiodarone hepatotoxicity is one of the complications that can occur with amiodarone therapy. 

Clinical presentation

In the majority of patients, it is discovered incidentally during routine testing of liver biochemistry and rarely do the hepatic effects develop into symptomatic liver injury or failure 1-5.

Radiographic features


While being non-specific, increased hepatic attenuation has been described as one of the effects of amiodarone on the liver 2-3. This however may not necessarily imply hepatotoxicity.
