Poster Abstract

Elevation in liver enzymes can be due to a variety of reasons such as toxins, drugs, autoimmune process, sepsis, malignant infiltration, alcoholic hepatitis, viral hepatitis, and other causes. In this case study, our patient presented with an obstructive pattern of liver test abnormalities. The patient demonstrated alkaline phosphatase levels >1000, with AST and ALT levels <200. His T-bilirubin initially was 1.5 and increased to 12.4 by the end of his hospital stay. Workup to exclude other causes of liver injury was performed and eventually a liver biopsy was needed to establish etiology. The biopsy revealed a malignant infiltration of likely Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma.
