The potential hepatotoxicity of herbal remedies and/or health foods is usually ignored in daily life. There have been cases showing the toxic hepatitis and renal failure associated with the ingestion of raw carp bile. We experienced a case of toxic hepatitis without any evidence of renal failure that was associated with carp juice ingestion. The clinical manifestations were characterized by nausea and vomiting after the ingestion of carp juice for 3 months. The diagnosis of toxic hepatitis was made on the basis of the patient’s history, laboratory data, RUCAM (Russel Uclaf Causality Assessment) and the results of ultrasonography guided liver biopsy. The patient showed rapid improvement after instituting supportive therapy. (Korean J Hepatol 2006; 12:103-106)
