Eight cases of fetal and infant death related to maternal methamphetamine abuse are presented. The mean fetal blood concentration of methamphetamine was 0.36 µg/mL (range, 0.03–1.20 µg/mL), and the mean concentration of amphetamine was 0.05 µg/mL (range, 0–0.08 µg/mL). Both maternal and fetal blood methamphetamine concentrations were obtained in two cases. The maternal and fetal methamphetamine concentrations for these two cases were 0.21 and 0.40 µg/mL and 0.18 and 1.20 µg/mL, respectively. The cause of death for each case, as listed by the pathologist, is also discussed.
