Abstract

Enflurane (ethrane; 2-chloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethyl difluoromethyl ether) has been widely used as an alternative general anesthetic agent to halothane over the past decade because halothane has been directly linked to hepatocellular damage. Several case reports have subsequently described a hepatitis after exposure to enflurane. We describe another case of enflurane hepatitis which supports earlier reports of this entity, discuss possible mechanisms of such hepatocellular damage, and review the pertinent literature.
