A case of acute hepatitis associated with Campylobacter jejuni bacteraemia is reported. Transaminase levels were increased over 50-fold in a patient with clinical features of enteritis and septicaemia. Campylobacter jejuni was isolated from blood and faecal cultures. Other infective and noninfective causes of acute hepatitis were excluded. The patient's symptoms and liver function values improved after antimicrobial therapy. Hepatitis should be considered as a complication of human Campylobacter jejuni infection.
