Obstructive jaundice secondary to drug administration has become a more frequent occurrence in recent years. Many compounds of varied chemical structure have been incriminated in the past, including methyltestosterone,1, 2 chlorpromazine,3 arsphenamine,4 para-aminosalicylic acid,5 sulfadiazine,6 thiouracil7 and methimazole.8 Of these drugs, chlorpromazine and methyltestosterone have received the greatest attention because of their frequent use. Norethandrolone, a potent anabolic testosterone derivative, has been mentioned as a cause of jaundice, but no case reports have been published to the authors' knowledge. It is the purpose of this paper to present the findings in a case of obstructive jaundice apparently due to norethandrolone.
