Title Acute efavirenz intoxication in a 16-year-old HIV negative girl: A
case report and literature review
Abstract We present an acute intoxication with 12 grams of efavirenz
(EFV) in a 16-year-old healthy girl whose main problem was neurotoxicity
which is dose-dependent. No other serious EFV-related side effects were
seen. Previous serious side effects of EFV were observed in HIV-infected
patients who underwent long-term combination drug therapy.
