BEZZI, María Paula et al. Toxicological study of a counterfeit medicinal product containing iron sorbitol. Acta toxicol. argent. [online]. 2006, vol.14, n.1, pp. 8-10. ISSN 1851-3743.
After the injection of an iron sorbitol preparation a pregnant woman died. Its chemical analysis determined a huge amount of iron (3.5-fold higher than the labeled). Results obtained by toxicological studies show that such medicinal product represents a sanitary risk and probably it could be presumed as the cause of death.
