Abstract

Tetrahydrozoline and xylometazoline and sympathomimetic agents with decongestant properties. They may also cause extreme drowsiness and CNS depression when accidentally ingested by the children. This report describes a two-year-old boy who took 2 mg of tetrahydrozoline and 1 mg of xylometazoline nose drops. Bradycardia and bradypnea and CNS depression have been observed. Supportive care and mechanical ventilation for first 24 hours have done to get complete resolution. Parents should be informed to keep this group of medicine away from children.
