Abstract

Drug administration during the last trimester of pregnancy may have adverse effects for the newborn.

CASE REPORT:

A hemolytic anemia occurred during the first hours of life in a full-term neonate whose mother had taken nitrofurantoin during the last month of pregnancy.

CONCLUSION:

The immature enzymatic systems of the neonate are exposed to this adverse effect and justify the recommendation not to prescribe nitrofurantoin at the end of pregnancy.
