Abstract

Recent studies postulate neurotoxic effects of prenatal tabacco exposure, passive addiction, and neonatal nicotine withdrawal syndrome in newborns in utero exposed to maternal smoking. The neonatal withdrawal syndrome is characterized by irritability, tremors, and sleep disturbances, most typically observed in newborns of heavy smoking mothers.
