Liver damage from long-term methyltestosterone
Of 60 patients (42 female transsexuals and 18 impotent males) receiving long-term therapy with methyltestosterone 50 mg three times a day, 19 had abnormal liver-function tests and 33 out of 52 had abnormal liver scans, particularly those who had been treated for more than a year. Liver biopsy specimens showed accumulation of hepatocytes in the liver cords and within the walls of centrilobular veins, and early peliosis hepatis. One patient had a hepatic adenoma. Of the androgens, only 17alpha-alkylated steroids seem to be implicated in the development of cholestatic jaundice, peliosis hepatis, and liver tumours.

Bartonellosis is an infection caused by bacteria in the genus Bartonella and can present as a variety of diseases depending on the organism involved. While asymptomatic infection has been reported, immunocompromised individuals are more susceptible to severe infection. Find the latest research on bartonellosis here.
