This case report describes fulminant hepatic failure in a 53-year-old female caused by inadvertent rechallenging with diclofenac, treated by orthotopic liver transplantation. The case also illustrates the hazards of using both generic and non-generic drug prescribing, with drugs that are known to be toxic. The literature on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and hepatoxicity is reviewed.
