A Case of Non-traumatic Rhabdomyolysis after Doxylamine Overdose
Sung Woog Hwang, Hyeung Kyeung No, Kee Hyuck Kim
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2002;45(8):1033-1037.   Published online August 15, 2002
Doxylamine is an antihistamine of the ethanolamine class. It is used primarily as a sleep-inducing agent. Clinicians should be aware of the complications in rhabdomyolysis patients who ingest doxylamine succinate and over-the-counter antihistamines. The easy availability of these substances increases the potential not only of intentional overdose by adults but also of inadvertent ingestion by children. Prompt intervention and careful...

We present a case of in-utero vesicoamniotic shunting and postnatal vesicostomy in a very low birth weight baby with posterior urethral valve syndrome. He was diagnosed as posterior urethral valve at 24+5 weeks' gestation. Because of severe hydronephrosis and oligohydroamnios, the shunt was established by basket-shaped catheter at 27+0 weeks' gestation. After shunt, hydronephrosis improved. At 29+4 weeks' gestation, the...
