Dimethylformamide(DMF), a widely used industrial solvent, has been reported to induce subtle to clinically overt hepatotoxicity. Liver injury due to occupational exposure through inhalation and skin contact have been sporadically reported. We reported a 42-year-old male Taiwanese who developed progressive, intermittent abdominal pain for 6 months after working in a synthetic leather factory. Acute hepatitis episode occurred after working in an enclosed and poorly-ventilated workplace for one day. Based on occupational history, pathological examination and serial liver function examinations, the case was compatible with DMF-induced acute chemical hepatitis.
