  1. D. A. Gorard
  1. Queen Mary's Hospital, London, UK.


    A patient presenting with a pyrexial illness and transiently deranged liver function tests is described. He had been taking minocycline for 12 months. The causal association with this drug was demonstrated by withholding and then rechallenging with minocycline. This report documents drug fever as an adverse reaction to minocycline, and its late onset is of added interest.
