Dolutegravir associated hepatic failure has rarely been reported. Hepatic failure can occur either acutely or after few weeks as it happened in our patient. We report a case of 61 years old HIV-positive treatment naïve patient who started experiencing features of hepatic injury one month after starting Dolutegravir-based regimen. Patient presented late with overt hepatic failure. We emphasize the importance of close monitoring both at initiation and long-term so as identify patients with early hepatic injury and limit fatal outcomes which are potentially avoidable.
