MARIN GABRIEL, Miguel Á et al. Enoxaparin overdose in a newborn. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2018, vol.116, n.6, pp.e762-e764. ISSN 0325-0075.

Enoxaparin is a low molecular weight heparin used in the neonatal period. It requires less monitoring than standard or unfractionated heparin, although current knowledge about its dose and therapeutic levels in neonates is scarce. In addition, there is very limited information about the management of overdose in this age group. We present the first case published in Spanish of a neonate who accidentally received a dose of enoxaparin ten times higher than the therapeutic one and an isolated dose of protamine to reverse its effect.

Keywords : Enoxaparin; Medication errors; Protamines; infant newborn.
