Cocaine found in a child's hair due to environmental exposure?

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review

Abstract

We report a case of a 6-year-old boy who had been living with his parents, both cocaine smokers, and who was urgently admitted to hospital for general distress. Upon examination, cocaine and cocaine metabolites were detected in hair and urine samples. These toxicological findings most likely indicate that the child had passively consumed the drug when living in a heavily contaminated environment.
