Due to the increase of addiction in the society specially that of opium, it seems that the number of children admitted for opium poisoning in childrens' Hospital Medical Center has increased. In this study, patients who had been admitted for opium poisoning were evaluated and 34 cases were confirmed between 1370-1377. The minimum age of these children was7 days & the maximum3.5 years (the mean being 7 months). In the majority of cases, opium was prescribed by the relatives for diarrhea (32.4%) acute respiratory infection (26.5%) and irritability (20.6%).An addict person in the family was confirmed. The pathognomonic signs of opium poisoning in all the patients had been a decrease level of consciousness, respiratory depression and miosis. Besides supportive measures, naloxone was prescribed as a bolus of 3.5 IV and as an infusion in half of the patients. Unfortunately 4 of these children expired because of severe respiratory insufficiency and deep coma. Because of the easy access to narcotics especially opium, families are warned of the dangers of opium use in children for diseases such as diarrhea, respiratory infection and irritability, a greater attention is to be paid to the problem of addiction to decrease the occurrence of such problems.
