Abstract

Information on ethyl alcohol intoxication in children is scarce. It is generally believed that children are more vulnerable to ethyl alcohol intoxication than adults. However, little information has been published on the effects of ethanol in the pediatric age group. The incidence of hypoglycemia and convulsions following ethanol intoxication is not known. We report a fatal case of acute alcohol intoxication associated with hypoglycemia, convulsion and coma.
