Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Historically, some dressings used in exomphalos major were associated with toxicity. These have been abandoned in favor of safer dressings. Silver toxicity has not been described following the use of silver dressings in infants. We, however, found disconcerting serum silver levels in 2 consecutive patients during treatment with silver salt containing dressings.
