Abstract

Poisonings by analgesic-antipyretic drugs in childhood in our country need specific prevention measures because of their incidence and clinical severity. We analysed the clinical-epidemiologic data of 114 cases of poisonings in children under 16 years of age and the results of a questionnaire answered by 507 adults to identify risks factors. The most of these poisonings happened at home; the esposition was accidental in younger children, even if it often depended from therapeutic mishaps; it was more frequently voluntary at the age of 10. Disinformation on risks and lack of appropriate store in the house are the main factors. The prevention therefore must be based either on the education and the use of safe child resistant containers, besides other passive preventive measures.
