Description
A young woman with epilepsy was found dead on her bed. She sent e-mail to her lover to intent to suicide 17 hours before being found dead. On the bed side, empty PTP sheets of 202 sustained released preparation tablets containing 200 mg sodium valproate were left. Many tablets and its capsules were found in stomach and intestine by autopsy. The blood concentration of sodium valproate was 1263 μg/ml, therefore we diagnosed that she died of sodium valproate intoxication. This case is first autopsy case of sodium valproate intoxication reported in Japan. And we also discuss about sustained released preparation tablets.
