Toxic hepatitis is an inflammation of your liver. Toxic hepatitis occurs when your liver is damaged by toxic chemicals, drugs, or certain poisonous mushrooms that you ingest or to which you've been exposed. In some cases, toxic hepatitis develops within hours or days of exposure to a toxin. In other cases, it may take months of regular use before symptoms of toxic hepatitis appear. Often, the symptoms of toxic hepatitis clear when your exposure to the toxin stops. But toxic hepatitis can permanently damage your liver, leading to irreversible scarring of liver tissue (cirrhosis) and in some cases to liver failure.
Mild forms of toxic hepatitis may not cause any noticeable problems and may be detected only by blood tests. When signs and symptoms occur, they're similar to those caused by other types of hepatitis:
- Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Weight loss
- Dark or tea-colored urine
