Özet

Valproate is a widely used drug in the treatment of epilepsy in children and adults. However, it is not safe for patients under two years of age, especially during the newborn period. This study presents a case of fatal valproate overdose in a 26-day-old female newborn, who is the youngest patient in the literature.
