Abstract A fatal rupture of an hepatic tumour occurred in an athlete who had been taking anabolic steroids for several years as an aid to body building. The case illustrates the hazards of non-therapeutic androgen administration, and emphasises the need for athletes to be made clear of the disturbances to gonadal function, liver structure and function, and the threat to life.
