Abstract

Antimalarials, camphor, clonidine, methyl salicylates, and sulfonylureas all may result in serious poisonings and are potentially fatal in small doses in toddlers. Early recognition and appropriate management, including antidotal and supportive care, may prevent poor outcomes in these patients.
