The world literature contains few reports of infants born while intoxicated by alcohol. I describe the clinical course of such a child who had a high blood alcohol concentration on delivery, and exhibited features of acute alcohol withdrawal in the days after birth. He later demonstrated features consistent with a partial alcohol foetopathy (foetal alcohol effects).
