PMID:  509883     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Pregnancy in a woman who took laetrile as daily intramuscular injections during the last trimester resulted in a live, term infant. No laboratory or clinical evidence of elevated cyanide or thiocyanate, a pricipal metabolite, could be detected. Neurological evidence of chronic cyanide exposure may not be recognizable in infancy, and long-term follow-up is indicated.
