Abstract

Opioid synthetic pain killers act centrally and are commonly used for management of high grade pain. Although it is a standard drug being prescribed all over the world, its accidental or intentional overdose is more common in adolescent and adult males. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy who was brought to our clinic in an unconscious state following opioid intoxication. He was managed with conservative approach and made a significant improvement before discharge.
