Dermatological practice involves the use of systemic drugs; some of them carrying boxed warnings of hepatotoxicity while others causing inadvertent or idiosyncratic liver damage. Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is a common problem faced by dermatologists and refers to liver damage caused by medications, herbs, or other xenobiotics which can sometimes be fatal. Diagnosis of DILI remains challenging due to nonspecific clinical presentations compounded by a lack of knowledge in this area. With careful patient selection and systematic monitoring, liver injury should be rare in the dermatological setup. This review article is written with the aim of increasing awareness of DILI among dermatologists and thereby preventing liver injuries from common drugs.
