Abstract

The severity of paracetamol poisoning varies but in general, children are considered less susceptible to its toxic effects compared to adults. In this report we describe the relatively benign ingestion of paracetamol in children and also highlight a case of intrauterine exposure to a potentially toxic dose of paracetamol.
