Multidrug toxicity in a newborn: A case report.

Neonates are more vulnerable to the effects of medication errors. Herein we will report an infant who was given adult doses of sefdinir/clavulanic acid, paracetamol, iron III hydroxide and bemiparin sodium accidentally by his parents for 3 days and admitted to the hospital with severe acute kidney injury, and focal convulsions. Herein, the kidney functions were affected more greatly by multidrug toxicity than hepatic functions and severe metabolic acidosis was one of the main problems in this case. By this way, we aimed to take attention to the multidrug toxicities in neonates.
