  6. Conclusion

The drug poisoning can be confused with viral hepatitis, with biliary tract obstruction with cirrhosis and hepatoma. The liver can be attacked in various ways: necrosis, hepatitis nonspecific, chronic hepatitis, etc. In the process are involved biotransformation of chemicals and individual susceptibility to them.

Generally not the product that acts directly on the liver, but some of its toxic metabolites. It is difficult to characterize the relationship between the cause and the effect. The hepatotoxic agent may be intrinsic or idiosyncratic type. The intrinsic type hepatotoxin acts quickly (hours or days) and is independent of the body's susceptibility (trichloroethane, solvents with carbon tetrachloride, certain mushrooms and acetaminophen). In type idiosyncratic hepatotoxin acts length (months) and has mixed developments (halothane, isoniazid, phenytoin and Chlorpromazine).
