Background: Despite the efficacy of raltegravir in reducing viral load in HIV-infected patients, evidence for its safety in late pregnancy is lacking. A high rate of placental transfer was recently demonstrated. Case: A treatment-naïve 34-year-old HIV-1-positive woman of African origin began treatment with zidovudine/lamivudine, lopinavir/ritonavir, and raltegravir at 35 weeks of pregnancy. After 11 days of treatment with raltegravir, a substantial reduction in viral load was achieved. Concurrently, she had a 23-fold increase in serum alanine aminotransferase and a 10-fold increase in serum aspartate aminotransferase, both of which returned to normal when raltegravir treatment was discontinued. A healthy boy was delivered at term. The infant's tests for HIV were negative at five months, and he had no health problems at eight months. Conclusion: This is the first case report, to our knowledge, of increased maternal serum transaminase levels following the use of raltegravir in a woman at a late stage of pregnancy.
