    A review of 182 cases from the U.S. National Halothane Study showed the interval to the onset of jaundice after one exposure to halothane (91 cases) to be slightly shorter than the interval for those having had multiple exposures to the agent. These findings are in sharp contrast to other recently published results. Thirty-three cases of jaundice after the use of other anaesthetic agents are also reported.
