Abstract

Mercury poisoning is a rare cause of poisoning in pediatric age group. Although fetal and neonatal poisoning with mercury has been described due to chronic antenatal maternal exposure, acute mercury poisoning in the neonate has not been described in literature. Here we present a very rare case of acute mercury poisoning in a neonate which was later found to be of homicidal intent.
