dc.description.abstract Alcohol intoxication is extremely rare in the neonatal period. Clinical presentation may be occurred by lethargy, tremor, mild fever, hypoglycemia, hypotonia, respiratory depression and coma. Intoxication usually appears as giving the baby alcohol with neglect of family or accident. The basic principle of therapy is support therapy and provision of clinical stabilization of the baby the elimination of alcohol from the body until it does. When the drops of 70% ethyl alcohol that her mother thought the gas drops unintentional was dripped to baby's mouth, lid of drug cover was opened and poured abundantly. Afterward, a 25 days old female case was presented to our hospital emergency service. Her physical examination was normal, serum ethyl alcohol level was 3.12 mg/dl (0.12 per mil). This case, that was provided clinical stabilization and applied only supportive therapy, was discharged four days later. In this report, we wanted to emphasize that family and/or caregivers should be well-trained drug administration in neonates. © The Journal of Current Pediatrics, published by Galenos Publishing.
