Brief Answer: Reasons can be as below Detailed Answer: Hi, Increase in liver enzymes like SGPT\SGOT may rarely be seen with involvement of liver by lymphoma. If there was a baseline increase in enzymes, this could be the reason. If enzymes were elevated after starting chemotherapy, it’s due to the drugs. The drug dosages need to be adjusted based on serum bilirubin levels. I think you need to have a thorough physical examination by your doctor to see for any clue regarding liver involvement and decide investigations based on that. Hope I have answered your question.
