Chelation during sequential pregnancies: A case report with a twist

Morri E. Markowitz, Joann Mercedes, Olga Apt-Dudfield

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This report summarizes chelation management of lead poisoning occurring during sequential pregnancies. Several aspects make this case unusual; firstly recurrent lead poisoning, secondly treatment with succimer, the use of which is very rarely reported in pregnancy, and thirdly the presence of co-existent vitamin D deficiency and hyperparathyroidism, both potential contributors to bone lead release.
