“[Behavioural impairments and hallucinations after consumption of boldo leaf infusions] Troubles du comportement et hallucinations après consommation d’infusions de feuilles de boldo”. 
Therapie. 2014 Sep-Oct 19;69(5):465-7.
We report a case of behavioural impairments with hallucinations in a twelve-year-old girl, after consumption of boldo leaf infusions. The main alkaloid of boldo, named boldine, is very likely responsible for temporary neuropsychiatric disturbances present in the patient. The emergence of behavioural problems and hallucinations without any obvious cause, should lead to search for consumption of boldo leaf infusion ("tisanes"). This consumption must be avoided in children.
