Triptans are a class of drugs with proven efficacy in the acute treatment of migraine headache. The first component of these drugs was sumatriptan, with various derivatives subsequently emerging. Until now, there has only been one reported case of liver toxicity with zolmitriptan. We now present a case of hepatotoxicity related to another drug in this group: rizatriptan. © 2012 Elsevier España, S.L. and AEEH y AEG.
