Abstract

Objective: Drug intoxications are among the major causes of emergency department admissions. There is a limited number of studies exploring the differences between adolescent and adult cases of intoxication. We aimed to compare adolescent and adult cases of drug intoxication to determine demographic and clinical properties of intoxications and necessary measures that have to be taken in both age groups.
