Drug-Induced Liver Injury in Older Adults

In this review the authors describe the epidemiology, mechanisms, detection and management of drug-induced liver injury with particular concern to old age. They argue that monitoring for clinical response is essential to optimize efficacy and reduce toxicity. They warn that the detection of adverse effects of medications in older patients can be complicated by nonspecific presentation as geriatric syndromes.
