Cardiotoxicity associated with accidental bupropion ingestion in a child.

Bupropion, an atypical antidepressant commonly used for depression and smoking cessation, is well known to cause seizures in both therapeutic use and overdose, but cardiac effects have been reported as minimal, usually sinus tachycardia. We describe an ingestion of bupropion estimated to be greater than 2 g by a 3-year-old boy that resulted in seizures. The child was decontaminated with whole bowel irrigation (WBI), and he experienced aspiration of polyethylene glycol and electrolyte solution used for the WBI. The patient ultimately developed hypotension and bradycardia requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation due to the effects of the bupropion combined with the complications of WBI. In contrast to previous literature, which showed few clinical effects aside from seizures from ingestion of bupropion by children, our case highlights the dangers of pediatric bupropion ingestion and highlights risks of WBI.
