Treatment with hepatic enzyme-inducing antiepileptic drugs leads to increases in the levels of total cholesterol (TC) and triglyceride (TG). We report a case of a 10-monthold infant with hyperlipidemia due to use of rectal phenobarbital-paracetamol combination during echovirus infection. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature of hyperlipidemia due to rectal phenobarbital use.
