Acute liver damage (ALD) is associated with high-dose intravenous (iv) glucocorticoid (GC) (ivGC) pulse therapy in ~1 % of patients for Graves' orbitopathy (GO). It has been proposed that statins may increase the risk of ALD. Here we investigated the frequency of ALD according to the assumption of statins in a large retrospective cohort study.

Statins are not a risk factor for liver damage associated with intravenous glucocorticoid pulse therapy for Graves' orbitopathy

Abstract

Acute liver damage (ALD) is associated with high-dose intravenous (iv) glucocorticoid (GC) (ivGC) pulse therapy in ~1 % of patients for Graves' orbitopathy (GO). It has been proposed that statins may increase the risk of ALD. Here we investigated the frequency of ALD according to the assumption of statins in a large retrospective cohort study.
