A 59-year-old man came to the emergency department because of nausea and vomiting, a slight fever, abdominal tenderness, and jaundice. Upon examination, he admitted drinking as many as 12 servings of alcohol per week, which he had done for the past ten years. Because of a recent injury to his knee, he had been taking up to eight 500 mg tablets of acetaminophen every day for the past two weeks. Tests revealed elevated liver enzymes, bilirubin, serum glucose, and blood acetaminophen concentrations.
