Abstract

Hemodynamic overload, cardiac ischemia, and arrhythmia are postulated to originate from 'sex-cocaine' syndrome resulting in maternal and fetal death. High concentrations of cocaine and metabolites in maternal blood, urine, and nasal secretions confirmed recent ingestion. Changes in the maternal life-style may have contributed to the poor pregnancy outcome.
