A child presenting with
acute renal failure secondary to a high dose of indomethacin: a case report
Acute renal failure caused by
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs administered at therapeutic doses is
generally mild, non-anuric and transitory. There are no publications on
indomethacin toxicity secondary to high doses in children. The aim of this
article is to describe acute renal failure secondary to a high dose of
indomethacin in a child and to review an error in a supervised drug
prescription and administration system.
Due to a medication error, a
20-day-old infant in the postoperative period of surgery for Fallot's tetralogy
received a dose of 10 mg/kg of indomethacin, 50 to 100 times higher than the
therapeutic dose. The child presented with acute, oligo-anuric renal failure
requiring treatment with continuous venovenous renal replacement therapy,
achieving complete recovery of renal function with no sequelae.
In order to reduce medication
errors in critically ill children, it is necessary to develop a supervised drug
prescription and administration system, with controls at various levels.
