Diflucan® Injury Lawyers
Diflucan® is a prescription medication designed to treat and prevent certain types of fungal infections, including yeast infections of the mouth, lungs, abdomen, and vagina. It is also sometimes used to treat forms of fungal meningitis.
In 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration released a report warning that babies of pregnant women who use Diflucan may have increased risks of developing certain types of birth defects.
If you took Diflucan while pregnant and your child was born with birth defects, you may be eligible for compensation for your child’s medical expenses. Call the Diflucan injury lawyers at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough today. Dial (800) 210-8503 or fill out a free initial consultation form.
Types of Diflucan® Birth Defects
The children of women who take high doses of Diflucan during the first three months of pregnancy may develop birth defects, such as:
This condition is associated with a premature fusion of bones at the top of the skull, resulting in a flat appearance of the head. Children who suffer from this condition are at increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome and serious head injuries.
Children with arthrogryposis have shortened joints in the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and knees. Other conditions like muscle weakness and fibrosis also may be present. Treatment for this condition often involves multiple surgeries and physical therapy.
