Despite their prevalence, research into drug-induced diseases (DIDs) is limited. India DID information is currently unavailable. To better understand the nature of DIDs during a two-year period in a tertiary care teaching hospital in northern India, this retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted utilising suspected adverse drug reaction (ADR) data collected from the PharmacovigilanceProgramme of India (PvPI). The term "drug induced disease" refers to an adverse reaction to a medication that leads to the patient's death or hospitalisation and typically includes symptoms severe enough to warrant medical treatment and/or hospitalisation that may continue even after the drug has been discontinued. Iatrogenic disorders, which are caused by medical interventions, are well recognised yet poorly understood. Review and research articles on drug-induced disorders are compiled here.
