|Abstract:||In the face of increasing societal pressure to achieve bodily perfection, young men in particular sometimes turn to anabolic steroids to help them achieve the body they want. The health consequences of this choice are often overlooked. We describe two cases of severe cholestatic liver disease in young men who had taken anabolic steroids with the aim of enhancing their body image.|
