Cholestatic jaundice is a common clinical scenario in gastroenterology and hepatology practice. There are numerous causes for cholestatic jaundice which can be differentiated on the basis of good history and appropriate blood tests. Drugs commonly causing cholestatic jaundice include Co-Amoxiclav, Chlorpromazine, Prochlorperazine, Fusidic Acid, Glibenclamide etc. This case report highlights the potential of warfarin to cause cholestatic jaundice, which a physician should bear in mind in everyday prescribing. © 2008 Rila Publications Ltd.
