We report a case of a child with pre-B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia undergoing maintenance chemotherapy with 6-mercaptopurine and methotrexate (MTX) who developed sinusoidal obstruction syndrome after being treated with ciprofloxacin for BK viremia. This case represents a rare complication of maintenance therapy with MTX and 6-mercaptopurine, and suggests a drug interaction between ciprofloxacin and MTX.
