Dr. Gürbüz Akçay*, Dr. Arif Ortanca, Dr. Erol Çetinkaya and Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Çaksen

ABSTRACT

Essential oils are a kind of herbals and they are commonly used for various purposes. In this article, we report a 17-month-old and a 10-month-old boys, presented with generalized tonic-clonic convulsion after taking sage oil (an essential oil made from the herb sage, Salvia officinalis). The first boy’s mother had given to him two teaspoons of sage oil for making the child comfortable an hour before admission. Neurological examination was normal. After admission to the emergency department, he has vomited and a generalized tonic-clonic convulsion, lasting 3 min, occurred. The seizure was controlled with rectal diazepam. Seizures did not recur during his follow up. Electroencephalography was also normal. The second boy’s mother had given to him one-to-two ml of sage oil instead of vitamin D3 at the night. He has twice tonic-clonic convulsions after four and five hours taking sage oil. His convulsions had controlled by rectal diazepam and intranasal midazolam, respectively. On account of those cases we would like to emphasize that Sage Oil may cause seizure in infants.
