Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 3-year-old child developed vomiting, ataxia, and crystalluria after ingestion of approximately 232 mg/kg of felbamate elixir. High-powered polarization microscopy of the urine revealed sharp, needle-like crystals. The analysis of the urine crystals showed unchanged felbamate (80.9%), monocarbamate felbamate (18.8%), and trace amounts of mercapturic acid conjugates of the metabolite 2-phenylpropenal (0.1%). The serum felbamate level 15 h after ingestion was 138 mg/L. Crystalluria and hematuria resolved with intravenous fluid therapy, and the child recovered within 24 h.
