Abstract

Botulism during pregnancy is uncommon and raises concern due uncertainty about fetal impairment. This type of situation has not been reported to date. Treatment is basically symptomatic and based on nursing care. The prognosis is tightly correlated with the maternal status. Dietary hygiene is the basis of prevention. We describe a case of botulism occurring during the second quarter of pregnancy.
