Effets hépatobiliaires des substances utilisées par les usagers de drogues : revue de la littérature

Abstract : Introduction: The use of psychoactive substances (PAS) has diversified over the past several years, with a heterogeneous user population and a variety of products consumed. If the use disorder and the psychiatric disorders related to the consumption are known, the somatic complications are less known. Method: We conducted a review of the literature to analyze the hepatotoxic potential of the main PAS, apart from infectious hepatic complications related to injections. Results: Among the substances we studied, those most known to cause liver damage are MDMA (also known as ecstasy), cocaine, kratom and khat. MDMA and cocaine are substances that are increasingly used, particularly by young people, unlike khat and kratom, whose use remains more exceptional in France. Conclusion: somatic complications related to the use of PAS contribute to their dangerousness and can have a warning value. It is important that health professionals report to the addictovigilance center the complications related to the use of PAS in order to reduce the risks and adapt prevention programs.
