Abstract

This report of a case of symptomatic lead poisoning in infancy reinforces the need for continued vigilance in screening and the application of effective therapies to prevent serious physiologic, neurocognitive, and behavioral sequelae. Furthermore, this case illustrates the efficacy of repeated courses of outpatient succimer therapy in limiting a rebound in blood lead concentrations.
