Statins and acetaminophen

My husband is fifty and has taken a statin drug for about 7 years.  Prior to his last regular blood work, he took several doses of tylenol.  His blood work showed a liver function number of 600.  All other numbers were normal.  Could the interaction of the statin and acetaminophen account for this liver function number?
