Abstract

Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms is a quite unusual condition related to drug reaction. A case report of sulfasalazine-induced liver failure is described. The patient was submitted to liver transplantation. Liver transplantation is an option when DRESS is associated with acute liver failure, but the prognosis remains poor.
