Background. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant agent that in toxic doses exhibits symptoms such as depressed mental status, hypotonia, hyporeflexia, and respiratory depression. Seizure is a less common presentation of Baclofen toxicity, especially in pediatric patients.
Case Description. The patient was a 4 year-old boy with no previous neurologic disorder who experienced status epilepticus after ingestion of high dose of Baclofen orally. He was treated conservatively and after 8 hours, he became awake in good condition without any abnormal finding in imaging or laboratory tests.
Discussion. This case describes some rare clinical presentations of Baclofen toxicity that were seizure and bradycardia in an otherwise-normal pediatric patient which could be managed conservatively.
