Abstract Hypothermia due to medicaments is an infrequent idiosyncratic reaction. There are only six similar cases related to the consumption of ibuprofen reported in the WHO adverse drug reactions database. Two of the cases of hypothermia attended in our unit seem to be due to the consumption of the mentioned medicament. The existence of hypothermia makes necessary some complementary tests to discard other more frequent aetiologies, as well as the notification of the adverse reaction to the corresponding Drugs and Therapeutics Centre. Key words: Hypothermia, Ibuprofen, Adverse drug reaction.


Adverse drug reaction Hypothermia Ibuprofen
