A patient receiving daptomycin developed asymptomatic transaminitis and hyperbilirubinemia without concurrent multi-organ dysfunction or creatinine kinase elevation. After ruling out other etiologies, the liver injury was attributed to daptomycin and subsequently resolved. A single-center retrospective cohort analysis of all admissions during which daptomycin was administered from 2008 to 2013 with baseline and follow up liver function panels (n= 614) did not reveal any other cases of probable or definite drug-induced liver injury associated with daptomycin.
