I was wondering what are the 38 drugs that can cause drug-induced lupus?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Three worth knowing

Isoniazid, Procainamide and Hydralazine are the three to remember. The latter two are largely superseded by newer medications.
There's a bunch of others reported; http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000446.Htm gives a pretty good list, i had a case with phenytoin, and there's nothing magic about "38". New ones will appear over time.
