We report a case of acute hepatitis during lamotrigine treatment. Albumine dialysis with MARS contributed to a favourable clinical course and recovery. Liver histopathological findings suggest an immunoallergic mechanism at the basis of this fulminant hepatic failure rather than a direct toxic injury to the liver.
