[Drug poisoning in the 39th week of pregnancy--a case report].

Abstract

It is reported on an intoxication with nitrazepam at the end of pregnancy. The fetal cardiotachogram showed a silent oscillation type for more than 20 hours. A cesarean section could not be performed, therefore the pregnancy was terminated by spontaneous delivery 20 hours later after the beginning of labour. Although a fetal endangering by a silent oscillation type could not be excluded, due to the metabolism of nitrazepam in the mother the newborn baby did not show major intoxication symptoms.
