Hepatotoxicity due to cocaine has been well described in animal models. There are few reports on cocaine-induced hepatic injury in humans; however, its link to rhabdomyolysis and renal failure is better known. We report a case of reversible acute hepatonephrotoxicity associated with recreational cocaine use. The proposed mechanisms responsible for its hepatic and renal toxicity are reviewed.
