Formatted abstract 6-thioguanine (6TG) has become the ‘ugly sister’ of azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine since it has been associated with sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS) of the liver. Although the overall toxicity profile of 6TG seems superior to that of the other thiopurines, further use of 6TG was largely discarded due to fear of this complication and related hepatic nodular regenerative hyperplasia and veno-occlusive disease. There is emerging evidence showing that 6TG-associated SOS is a dose-dependent and reversible phenomenon. Therefore, it is urged that the use of 6TG in inflammatory bowel disease be reconsidered; randomized controlled studies are warranted.

A 6-tioguanina (6TG) tornou-se “a irmã feia” da azatioprina e da 6-mercaptopurina, pois tem sido associada à “síndrome da obstrução sinusoidal” (SOS) do fígado. Embora o perfil de toxicidade geral da 6TG talvez seja superior ao de outras tiopurinas, a continuação do uso de 6TG foi amplamente descartada devido ao medo dessa complicação e das relacionadas à hiperplasia hepática nodular regenerativa e doença veno-oclusiva. Evidências emergentes demonstram que a SOS associada à 6TG é um fenômeno dose-dependente que pode ser revertido. Portanto, é urgente que o uso do 6TG na doença inflamatória intestinal seja reconsiderado; são necessários estudos randomizados e controlados.
