Abstract

The increase of available synthetic cannabinoids poses an emerging public health threat worldwide. Synthetic cannabinoid use has been mainly reported in adolescent cases in pediatric practices; there are few reported cases involving infants affected by unintentional use. In this case report, we present the youngest age of synthetic cannabinoid bonzai exposure in the literature, discussing a 3-month-old child affected by exposure to the parents' use of bonzai in the home environment. Because unintentional exposure to synthetic cannabinoids like bonzai might be encountered, pediatric emergency teams should be aware of this condition and child protection teams should be informed of suspicions of child negligence and abuse as a part of the medical approach.
