ABSTRACT
Objective:
This case report describes a patient who suffered a drug-induced liver injury and was treated with Saengganggeonbi-tang.

Methods:
A patient was treated with Korean herbal medicine, and the treatment effect was evaluated using liver function tests (LFT) to determine total cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Results:
The patient’s LFT levels were normal on 27 July 2021 but became abnormal by 12 August 2021 after taking Western drugs. After 15 days of treatment with Saengganggeonbi-tang, the LFT levels had improved.

Conclusion:
This study shows that Saenggangeonbi-tang may be an effective treatment for drug-induced liver injury.
Key words: drug-induced liver injury (DILI), liver function tests (LFT), Saenggangeonbi-tang, antilipidemic agents
